Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo Discusses New Album


During the recent Mile High Music Festival bands stopped by the American Express ® ZYNC ZONE to chat with SPIN about their summer festival experiences and more. We caught up with Rivers Cuomo of Weezer. Watch the interview-plus, see performance footage of “Hash Pipe” and “Troublemaker” below!

“Being in Weezer’s just gotten so much more fun over the years,” Cuomo told SPIN. “I love almost every part of my job. My very favorite part is working on new songs.”

A whole batch of new Weezer tracks will arrive September 14 in the form of Hurley, the band’s ninth studio album. “There’s just so much raw, unpolished energy,” said Cuomo of the new album. “As a singer, I’m doing all kinds of things I never did before. I’m gonna scream, or I’m gonna sing like a crazy person, or very gently. I’m all over the place.”
