Weezer’s “modern” Black album is coming in a year

"The next album is going to feel like an urban environment, night-time and gritty and hopefully a lot more modern sounds, synthesised sounds, samples maybe."
Weezer have only just put out their latest record, and they’re already onto the next in their heads.



The band’s fourth self-titled album – or the ‘White’ album as it’s more likely to be referred – was released last Friday (1st April), and seen by many as a return to form for the band.



“I’m already well into thinking about the ‘Black’ album which’ll be coming out in a year,” frontman Rivers Cuomo told Upset. “I’ve just got to go with what feels exciting in the moment and right now, I’m excited to do a black album but y’know, that could change.



“The next album is going to feel like an urban environment, night-time and gritty and hopefully a lot more modern sounds, synthesised sounds, samples maybe. I like to break away from the ‘distorted power chord’ thing but its hard ‘cause it works so well.”



Weezer are set to play London’s Brixton Academy later this week. You can read the full interview in the new issue of Upset, out this Wednesday (6th April). Pre-order a copy here.
