Yawners Announces New Album, Shares New Single ‘Rivers Cuomo’

    Yawners, the project of Spanish singer-songwriter Elena Nieto, has shared a new single called ‘Rivers Cuomo’. It’s taken from their upcoming album Duplowhich arrives on May 6 via Counter Intuitive (US) / Big Scary Monsters (UK) / Montgri (Spain) / Impartmant (Japan). According to a press release, the Weezer frontman himself said that “this is a really pretty song” upon listening to it. You can check it out below.

    “I usually write very literal songs, I don’t usually use metaphors or anything like that, and this is the perfect example,” Nieto said in a statement about the track. “The song is about writer’s block; it’s about trying to write a song and not coming up with anything good.” She continued:

    I really like Weezer and Rivers Cuomo has always made me curious. When I was in the process of composing the album, I read an interview in a Chilean newspaper in which he revealed a trick he has developed to write songs. He has an Excel file in which he writes phrases, chord progressions, and more, and creates songs with a formula that puts together the bits and pieces that match. I thought this was really cool and I wrote the chorus of my song about this. On a melodic level I am very proud of the guitar solo in this song. Guitar solos are something that seem not to be trendy anymore, but the reality is that when a well-done solo appears in a song it’s very hard not to enjoy it haha.

    Yawners’ debut LP, Just Calm Down, came out in 2019.
