All We Wanted Was His Amazing Face

I used to be a pretty big Weezer fan. I thought their first two albums, Weezer (a.k.a The Blue Album) and Pinkerton, were brilliant efforts; I still listen to them both on a fairly regular basis. But they lost me after Pinkerton; of the five albums they've put out since, I'm only familiar with a handful of songs.

In fact, it wasn't until yesterday that I found out Weezer's releasing a new album this year - September 14, four days before my thirty-*cough* birthday. (Just sayin'.)

The album is going to be called Hurley, and yes, this is the cover.

Says Rivers Cuomo, "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 we 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."

AWESOME. Or, as Hurley himself would say, Dude. Awesome.

"Memories," the first single from Hurley, was released today:
