Weezer has released Weezer (The Teal Album), which includes the mega-hit cover of “Africa,” by Toto, “Happy Together” by The Turtles, and “Take On Me,”  by a-ha.

Weezer started working covers into their shows during 2018, and was inspired to put together a covers album. The music is released through Crush Music/Atlantic Records.  Click HERE to listen to it.

Weezer (The Teal Album) precedes the band’s forthcoming new album of original Weezer songs, Weezer (The Black Album), which is expected to be released on March 1. Weezer (The Black Album) was produced by TV On The Radio’s Dave Sitek, with whom the band worked for the first time.

The album’s songs were entirely written on piano by frontman Rivers Cuomo for the first time in Weezer history, and according to a statement, that creates “some of the most satisfyingly awesome songs in the entire hits-filled Weezer catalogue.”
