Weezer's 10th album, White Album, comes out on April 1st, but is the anticipation going to be worth it in the end? So far, we aren't too impressed. The Los Angeles natives have previously-released the singles, "Thank God For Girls," "Do You Want To Get High?" and "King Of The World" to keep Weezer fans everywhere hanging on till the album drops. They've just released "LA Girlz" on Zane Lowe's Beats1 radio show and it's definitely reminiscent of the last two decades of Weezer -- which makes you wonder if their new album is going to be more of a throwback sound.
"LA Girlz" is an ode to the girls where it all began for Weezer: the land of beaches and babes. And it has "Weezer" written all over it; tons of guitar chords, California vibes, and the whiny, longing lyrics. With such a power-pop sound, it's actually a pretty painful song - with one of the lyrics being "Please act your age/You treat me like I have the plague." Weezer's frontman, Rivers Cuomo, mentioned there's already a Black Album in the making, which (hopefully) will show an innovative, darker side of the "Say It Ain't So" rock veterans.
