Weezer Release New Song, ‘Feels Like Summer,’ Announce Plans for New Album
Weezer will be putting out their 11th album this year, the follow-up to last year's The White Album. While they didn't give a specific release date or its title, they did give us a preview in the form of the first single, "Feels Like Summer."
The track, like so many of Weezer's most famous songs, is tinged with nostalgia, in this case a remembrance of an ex-wife whom the singer learns has passed away. You can watch the video above, and stream or legally download it from options via this link.
"We decided to skip spring entirely and go straight to summer," they wrote on their website. "Our new single 'Feels Like Summer' from our forthcoming album (coming this summer) is out now in North America.
Weezer are set to play a couple of high-profile shows at SXSW this weekend, including Rachael Ray's annual event. But after that they have dates booked across North America through September. This includes a 10-day tour of Canada beginning March 31 and numerous festivals in the U.S. You can see the calendar below and get full details at their website.
