A month after releasing the second single from of their upcoming new album, Weezer has treated fans to yet another new tune. On Thursday (Sept. 14), the California-founded band unleashed the third single of their upcoming album, Pacific Daydream. The new song is titled “Beach Boys” and pays a little bit of homage to frontman Rivers Cuomo’s biggest influence, the Beach Boys. Listen to the new tune above.
“Beach Boys” will join previously released songs “Feels Like Summer” and “Mexican Fender” on Weezer’s 11th studio album, Pacific Daydream. Pacific Daydream is set to be released on Oct. 27 through Crush Music/Atlantic Records.
Pacific Daydream is the follow-up to Weezer’s 2016 release, The White Album. After telling fans that their next album would not only be titled The Black Album but that it would be darker in content, Weezer changed their tune. The group announced that they had trashed all their ideas for The Black Album and decided to put out an album that sounded like “the Beach Boys and The Clash fell in love by the ocean and had one hell of an amazing baby.”
Earlier this week, Weezer announced on social media that they would be unveiling a brand new song at the end of the week. “New song Beach Boys coming Thursday. If you know the notes sing from your heart ’cause it’s gonna be fun.” Accompanying the band’s post on Twitter is an image of an old-school radio with some music notes above it and a pair of sunglasses resting against a bright yellow background. What fans probably didn’t know at the time was that the image was a sample of what the background for the lyric video would be.
In support of the song and the new album, the group is currently in the middle of their fall 2017 tour. Tonight, the band will perform at KAABOO in Del Mar, California. The full list of upcoming tour dates can be seen here.
