Previously thought only a hoax in celebration of April Fool's day (April 1), Weezer confirms that their new album will be titled "Weezer" for the third time. To differentiate the new set with the two others, this forthcoming release will be referred to as "Weezer (Red Album)".
The publicist also confirmed that the Geffen album will be released on June 17. The first single, according to a report on RollingStone.com, is in most probability "Pork and Beans", a title that is not in match with frontman River Cuomo's description. He wrote on the band's website that the single is "one word, starts with a T, ends with an R and contains twelve letters."
Beside coming from the band, production is also partly done by Rick Rubin and Jacknife Lee. Cuomo described the LP "definitely more sophisticated and adventurous. You'll hear very long songs... and non-traditional structures."
The band's 1994 album was the first to be self-titled, only to be referred to as the Blue Album after their comeback set in 2001 is also called Weezer and deemed the Green Album.
