Weezer dropped a metal-inspired single, “I Need Some of That,” a song from their upcoming album Van Weezer, on Wednesday (April 21).
“We just noticed over the last few years there’d be these moments during the show where I’d accidentally bust out a few harmonics or a whammy bar dive or a little tapping just because I can’t control myself,” Rivers Cuomo previously said of the inspiration for going metal on Van Weezer.
“And we noticed unlike in decades past, now the audience would go ballistic whenever they’d hear even a hint of that style. So I started doing it more and more. And soon I’m just like shredding through the whole show and we’re like, ‘Jeez, we should make an album like this,'” he added.
Weezer, which had earlier released “Hero,” “Beginning Of The End” and “End Of The Game” from Van Weezer, announced that the album, produced by Suzy Shinn, will arrive on May 7 via Crush Music/Atlantic Records.
“It’s almost Van Weezer time. These are all the songs on the album that comes out on May 7th,” the band wrote on social media.
