Weezer are dividing fans yet again, having recently shared singles that aren't currently attached to any album. The tracks follow up last years' Everything Will Be Alright In The End, which underwhelmed some, including myself.
First up was 'Thank God For Girls', which featured great artwork (below) and a really, really strange video, which can be seen above. The song itself was pretty quirky, detailing being forced fed cannolis, and the story of god taking one of Adam's ribs, which was "ground it up in a centrifuge machine/Mixed it with cardamom and cloves/microwaved it on the popcorn setting" in order to make women. I personally liked the track, but a load of people seem to be pretty vocal at their distaste. It demonstrates River Cuomo's playful lyrics over a track that's actually pretty hard. Is it dumb? Yeah of course, but it's also good fun.
The second single 'Do You Wanna Get High?' really got fans excited. Written about a girlfriend Cuomo was dating in 2000-01 who doesn't exactly sound like the best influence ever, the sound harks back to that time period and has been compared to the band's seminal 90's LPs The Blue Album and Pinkerton.
The two tracks aren't currently attached to any album, and fans are eagerly awaiting news of further material.
