On a day when Blink-182 took things back to their roots with a brand new pop-punk friendly track, alt-rock icons Weezer are doing quite the opposite. Today, Rivers Cuomo and company dropped a surprise new single titled “Feels Like Summer” – which, at first listen, sounds like something more fitting for a Panic! At The Disco record.
While we’re sure “Feels Like Summer” will have its success on alternative radio, we wouldn’t be surprised to see a few die-hard fans confused with the new track from the nerd-rock aficionados. Either way, love it or hate it, “Feels Like Summer” will be featured on a forthcoming, yet-to-be-announced Weezer album coming this summer.
“We decided to skip spring entirely and go straight to summer,” said the band on their Facebook page. “Our new single ‘Feels Like Summer’ from our forthcoming album (coming this summer) is out now.”
