Hear Weezer’s Rousing New Song ‘Feels Like Summer’

Band announces tour dates, details about 2017 album

Weezer mix stadium rock with elements of electronic dance music in their new single, “Feels Like Summer.” The song will appear on the band’s upcoming 11th album later this year. 

“Feels Like Summer” is precisely engineered for warm weather. Weezer built the song around a cheerful, springy keyboard riff and a mini-drop leading into the chorus. The song also incorporates some unexpected flourishes, like the fast-moving hi-hats ubiquitous in trap music and spurts of electronic background vocals.  

Weezer will debut “Feels Like Summer” live on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Tuesday next week, ahead of a short April tour in Canada and the United States. In October, Weezer will head to Europe, on their first tour there since 2005.

The band said it will release the follow-up to last year’s Weezer in 2017. Weezer debuted at Number One on both the Rock Albums and Alternative Albums charts. The LP also spawned two minor hits at rock radio in “Thank God for Girls” and “King of the World.”

Since the release of Weezer, the band put out a deluxe version of the record with four new tracks. In addition, lead singer Rivers Cuomo joined the electronic duo Zeds Dead on the song “Too Young.”
