Weezer Working on Another New Album

by Paul Cashmere, Noise11

Weezer have been putting the foundation of their next album together and it may be called Black, but then again, maybe it won’t.

Weezer bass player Scott Shriner told, “There is always something in the planning. We have started out on a certain course and changed our plans many, many times. I’ve been told ‘this is going to be the next record’ and then none of those songs make the album. Anything is possible. There is another batch of songs but we are still focusing on ‘Pacific Daydream’.”

Weezer have had colourful album titles over the years. 1994’s Weezer is referred to as The Blue Album. 2001’s Weezer is called The Green Album. 2008’s Weezer is The Red Album and 2016’s Weezer is The White Album. The next album is rumored to be another self-titled album dubbed The Black Album.

“It would be nice,” Scott says. “I’d love to put out an album every year. It could be called Black but we have had a lot of ideas in the past that have got changed”.

The likelihood of a 2018 album is strong, considering how prolific Weezer has been in recent years. In 2014 they released Everything Will Be Alright In The End, 2016 saw the release of The White Album and 2017 gave fans Pacific Daydream.

Weezer are yet to debut any songs from the potential The Black Album at this stage.
