Weezer have shared the lead single from their recently announced album OK Human. It’s called ‘All My Favorite Songs’ and it arrives with an accompanying video directed by Colin Read. Check it out below.
‘All My Favorite Songs’ was preceded by a playlist of the same name, which included songs by Johnny Cash, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Céline Dion, and more. “All my favorite songs are slow and sad/ I don’t know what’s wrong with me!” Rivers Cuomo sings.
Weezer announced OK Human earlier this week. “During the summer of COVID-19 we grabbed our masks, hit the studio & began to chip away at what is now known as OK Human,” the band said in a statement. “An album that was made by a handful of humans using only analog technologies (including a 38 piece orchestra) for all of you humans to consume.”
“OK Human was made at a time when humans-playing-instruments was a thing of the past,” they added. “All we could do is look back on ancient times when humans really mattered and when the dark tech-takeover fantasy didn’t exist. We used our instruments to connect to the 1960’s and 1970’s and, with the orchestra, back to the 18th and 19th centuries. We had no click track or loops or hi-tech sounds. Not even an electric guitar.”
OK Human arrives January 29 via Crush Music/Atlantic. Weezer also reassured fans that their previously announced album Van Weezer is still dropping May 7.
