Weezer – “Lonely Girl”
Hey, look, everybody! It’s perfectly acceptable Weezer! The band’s new album Everything Will Be Alright In The End looms ever closer, and the band has shared a few of its songs: “Back To The Shack,” “Cleopatra,” “The British Are Coming.” The band already previewed “Lonely Girl,” the latest, and now they’ve shared the full version. The song isn’t going to displace “Surf Wax America” on anyone’s list of the five best Weezer songs or whatever, but it’s a fine example of the sort of supercharged power-pop that this band does so well when Rivers Cuomo is feeling motivated. It’s a hooky, riffy, energized little song with some great Beach Boys harmonies toward the end, and you can hear it below.
Everything Will Be Alright In The End is out 10/7 on Republic.
