Weezer have dropped a surprise covers album, because Weezer

While we wait for the Black album, here's Teal.

Everyone loves a good covers band, right? That’s what Weezer are hoping for.

In the run up to the release of their self-titled Black album this March, the band have shock dropped a new full-length, ‘Weezer (The Teal Album)’. Made up of ten cover versions, including their previously released version of Toto’s ‘Africa’, it might just make them the world’s biggest wedding band.

After working a number of covers into their live set, they’ve recorded a bunch and put them together for the new collection, including takes on Tears for Fears, a-ha, Black Sabbath, ELO, TLC and Michael Jackson.

It’s quite something.
