WATCH: Weezer Announce White Album, Abuse Power in “King of the World” Video

The band's fourth self-titled album is out April 1.

And just when we’d gotten over the stomachache from the “Thank God for Girls” video. Weezer have announced their tenth album, Weezer, which will hit stores on April 1. For those keeping score, this is the fourth self-titled Weezer record (the last came out in 2008). The album, whose monochromatic cover pretty much guarantees that it’ll be called The White Album, features both “Thank God for Girls” and early single “Do You Wanna Get High,” while the Bethany Cosentino–featuring “Go Away” apparently didn’t make the cut.

According to a press release, Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo considers The White Album to be his “beach album.” Speaking of his love for The Beach Boys, he said, “I wanted to get that kind of vibe: beautiful tunes and sweet lyrics.” Cuomo, who lives in Santa Monica, was inspired by hanging with the crowds at Venice and Santa Monica’s beaches. “I also love the dark side of the beach,” he said. “Venice after dark, hearing at the Del Monte speakeasy about how the gangsters used to drag the bodies through the catacombs and leave them under the pier.”

The band also dropped a bleached-out video for album track “King of the World,” which finds a pretty entitled king jacking a woman’s bag of potato chips and sprinting down the beach. You can check out that video—plus The White Album’s track list and a lengthy set of summer co-headlining dates with Panic! At the Disco, below.
