Weezer aren’t afraid of unlikely collaborations. If you recall, Rivers arrived at our Decomposed session with the Dartmouth Aires, a cowboy flautist, percussionists from Aklaline Trio and Yellowcard, and Jermaine Dupri. Now, a day after we saw Odette Yustman try to pull the guys apart in “(If You’re Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To” comes news about a Spinner Interface session they did with Chamillionaire, Sara Bareilles and, yup, Kenny G. The smooth jazz icon added a saxophone solo to “I’m Your Daddy,” though he’d never really heard of the band before that moment:
I don’t know anything about Weezer — nothing. I’ve heard the name, but I never knew any of their songs [except] some song about a sweater … with the wool coming apart?
Coy. For his part, Chamillionaire stepped in on “Can’t Stop Partying,” which Cuomo co-wrote with Jermaine Dupri. (The album version includes Lil Wayne, who was otherwise preoccupied.) An acoustic cover of Green Day’s “Brain Stew” was also birthed during the five-song session. The videos don’t go live until next month, but you’ll find a gallery and more info at Spinner.
In the meantime…
