Welcome to the dark side. The Black Album era has arrived with the official announcement from LA alt-rockers Weezer that their much anticipated twelfth studio album is set for release in March 2019 via Crush Music/Atlantic Records.
Following the release of Weezer (The White Album) in 2016, the band began working on what they were calling “The Black Album”, but as they worked they found the songs they were writing felt more like reveries from a beach at the end of the world. So instead of forcing a different direction, they continued on with recording what became Pacific Daydream (2017), before re-visiting and completing their initial darker concept.
The Dave Sitek (TV On The Radio) produced record is the fifth colour coded eponymous album from Weezer following their 1994 debut (The Blue Album), The Green Album (2001), The Red Album (2008), and The White Album (2016).
A full tracklisting for the album, alternatively titled Invasion Of Privacy, is still forthcoming, although will include the two singles “Can’t Knock The Hustle” and “Zombie Bastards”.
