It looks like Weezer are tapping into the tween meme market. Earlier today, they premiered their new self-titled record, The Black Album, on the viral video game Fortnite. A new island called “Weezer World” popped up in the Fortnite universe — as part of the game’s eighth “season” — where players can explore and listen to four songs from the new album before its official, real-world release at midnight tonight. Earlier this month, Rivers Cuomo tweeted, “Weezer (The Fortnite Album).” Here’s hoping they don’t release any flossing videos. Check out Weezer Island below.
