Weezer fans will probably be doing a lot of looking back this year — the Blue Album’s twentieth anniversary is mere months away — but the band itself is moving forward with new music for the first time since 2010’s Hurley. In performances aboard last weekend’s Weezer Cruise, Rivers Cuomo and company debuted a new song called “Back To The Shack” that bears a distinct Pinkerton vibe — i.e. it sounds a lot better than anything Weezer has released in a long time. Lyrically, it seems to be very literally about going back to their roots and “rockin’ out like it’s ’94,” so, maybe Weezer is about to come full circle? Check out fan-made video of the song below.
Weezer is reportedly at work on a new album with Blue Album producer Ric Ocasek, and a greatest hits collection is on the way.
