To get you caught up: Last month we mentioned Weezer’s seventh album was on the way. After that, we heard two new, sexed-up songs performed live in South Korea. Then, following a previously unreleased non-album track’s appearance on a Guitar Center compilation, the band finally offered an actual October release date for the collection. We still don’t have the title, no, but we do have the power-popped first single “(If You Are Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To.” (Thanks for the tip, Tony.) At this point, Weezer news is met with a mix of anticipation and horror by longtime fans, but I’m thinking longtime fans will be less horrified this time.
Weezer’s seventh album is out 10/27. The “(If You’re Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To” single’s out 8/25.
