Anyone who was paying attention to the web in the morning yesterday got a sneak peak of the new Weezer single out August 25th, which promptly leaked in preparation for the next full length LP in October. "(If You're Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To" was accidentally posted in it's entirety for sale on the WalMart website, much to the glee of fans all over. And even more to the glee: the tune is a sprightly, upbeat, promising precursor to the as-of-yet untitled forthcoming LP.
This helps the veteran rockers, who suffered a lukewarm reaction to their last full length effort. But the situation has changed (as usual): Jacknife Lee, who only produced two tracks on the last album including "Pork And Beans," is taking over as the main producer. And so far, we like what we hear; the track is full of the kind of energy we love about old Weezer, with simple, catchy lyrics and a jumpy rhythm conducive to dancing and clapping.
Although 'slip-ups' like this leave us wondering whether they are intentional or accidental, it certainly got the buzz going for the new Weezer record. The band has a short tour planned for the next few weeks, no doubt to rev up for the scheduled release.
Weezer's seventh studio album is set to drop on October 29th. For those of you who missed the opportunity to hear the single, we're sure if you look hard enough, you can find it
