Weezer have released two new songs, “High As A Kite” and “Living In LA,” that’ll appear on their forthcoming The Black Album, which is due out next week. Last fall, they released two singles from it — “Can’t Knock The Hustle” and “Zombie Bastards” — but took a break in the rollout to put out a surprise covers album known as The Teal Album.
The two songs were produced by TV On The Radio’s Dave Sitek, as was the rest of the album. In an interview with Beats 1, Rivers Cuomo said that the producer inspired “the big idea” for the album, which was to write all of the songs on the piano, to give it “some of that classic songwriter-y feel.”
“High As A Kite” comes with a music video that’s a spoof on Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood called … Mister Rivers’ Neighborhood, but it ends with the band destroying the set.
