Weezer‘s 2021 includes the release of two new albums, and they plan to double that for their next project.
“Then each album has a very different vibe and lyrical theme,” he explained.
For example, the “spring” album would be filled with “lighthearted, breezy” songs, while the “fall” record might consist of Franz Ferdinand-inspired dance rock. The winter album, Cuomo added, would “include lots of loss and despair and [be] kind of quiet,” akin to the late singer-songwriter Elliott Smith.
“There’s always new things you can try,” Cuomo said.
Weezer just released a new, orchestral album called OK Human last Friday. Its guitar-driven counterpart, Van Weezer, is due out May 7.
