The new album will hit streets on June 24 through DGC/Interscope Records. To distinguish it from the other eponymous albums it's being referred by people as "The Red Album". There are now no more primary colors to describe eponymous Weezer albums having exhausted blue and green previously (to learn more about primary colors go here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Primary_color).
Comprised of sessions produced by Rick Rubin, Jacknife Lee and the band itself, the album is adventurous and undeniable Weezer pop-rock. The first single, the quirky and catchy "Pork and Beans," was recorded under the watch of the Irishman Lee and will soon be a Weezer classic. The song which will be available to buy digitally on April 22, is already at Modern Rock Radio and a video will be available in early May.
Great albums are culminations of the past with an eye to the future, and the Red Album has parts "Blue Album," "Pinkerton," and forges new territory with all four members taking turns singing lead. The "Red Album" is the rarest of modern music combinations: being both immediate and having the quality of growing better upon each subsequent listen. Weezer's last album, Make Believe spurred the band's highest charting Top 40 single (#2) in "Beverly Hills," and had two #1 Modern Rock hits with "Beverly Hills" and "Perfect Situation. That album sold platinum in U.S.
