Weezer is putting out a new album soon, and it's going to be called Hurley. That up there is the cover art. Hahahahahahahaha what? I spend three days in Chicago and everyone loses their minds! There is only one adequate reaction to this nonsense:
"We struggled super hard trying to come up with an album title, trying to find some kind of phrase that summed up the whole aesthetic behind the album: 'Heavy Mental,' 'Smaller Than Life,'" explained Cuomo. "I was coming up with all kinds of stuff, but ultimately, we just went with some random word that doesn't really have anything to do with anything. I just loved this photo of Jorge Garcia - it just had this amazing vibe. We didn't want to do a fourth self-titled record and we knew people would refer to it as 'the Hurley record' even if left it without that title, so we just called it Hurley. No words are on the cover because all we wanted was his amazing face."
"I only made it through season two, so I was really nervous hanging out with Hurley/Jorge recently, because I didn't want to hear something about how it all resolves, or overhear anyone else talking about it," he says. "I really like the show though."
Nothing on the album has anything to do with Hurley the character, Jorge Garcia, or the show. They just like his face. Is this an SNL sketch?
Guess we'll find out in September. Hurley hits shelves on the 14th via Epitaph. -joe puglisi
