Weezer drop new song “Weekend Woman”; 'Pacific Daydream' out 27th October 27 via Crush Music / Atlantic Records
Weezer have released another taste of their forthcoming eleventh album, Pacific Daydream, released on Crush Music/Atlantic Records on October 27th, 2017. The song - a sunlight-tinted, retro-glorious track called “Weekend Woman” - can be heard HERE. “Weekend Woman” follows the release of two other Pacific Daydream standout songs - “Mexican Fender” and “Beach Boys” - as well as the album’s massive first single, “Feels Like Summer,” which hit #1 at Alternative Radio.
Produced by Butch Walker, Pacific Daydream is the follow up to the critically acclaimed album Weezer (The White Album), which was nominated for a Grammy for Best Rock Album at the end of last year.
Following the release of Weezer (The White Album), the band began working on what they called “The Black Album,” but as they worked, they found the songs they were writing felt more like reveries from a beach at the end of the world. Instead of forcing a different direction, they began an entirely new album; Pacific Daydream was born. Frontman Rivers Cuomo brings this decision back to a Chinese proverb he says inspired the design behind the entire record:
Once upon a time, I, Chuang Chou, dreamt I was a butterfly, fluttering hither and thither, to all intents and purposes a butterfly. I was conscious only of my happiness as a butterfly, unaware that I was Chou. Soon I awaked, and there I was, veritably myself again. Now I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly, dreaming I am a man.
Pacific Daydream - an album full of the melodic mastery and craftsmanship for which Weezer are known - is a record that navigates the uncertainty between reality and dreams, blurring the line between the listener knowing if they are daydreaming the world of the album, or if the world of the album is daydreaming them. It’s a record about finding the grey area between the black and the white, about escaping the everyday into the fantasy of what may be just down the line, but also maybe isn’t. It’s an album that sounds like the Beach Boys and The Clash fell in love by the ocean and had one hell of an amazing baby. It’s Weezer doing all the things they do best and then some.

‘Think the Swedish version of Paramore’s Haley Williams and you’re half way there. MY’s punky approach comes complete with some serious pop gloss.’ NME
‘Shaking up the format of the music industry’ – Wired
Swedish songstress MY returns with 'Skeletons' the third single from her forthcoming EP, "Kids From The Woods", released via Relentless Records.
'Skeletons', with its poignant stop-frame lyric video, follows the release of stellar singles 'W.I.L.D' & 'Hate On Myself', which both notched up critical acclaim and impressive plays with coveted spots on Spotify New Music Friday playlists throughout Europe.
Speaking about 'Skeletons' MY says:
“Skeletons is a song about having trouble moving on from previous mistakes, collecting skeletons in the heart (rather than in the closet) and how they can come back to haunt you later on in life. I think we all carry them, and that we need to be able to accept forgiveness and forgive ourselves to be able move on. “I’m the monster - for telling myself I want you. When I’m the one who’s got all of those skeletons in my heart…" It was like it always is, had a great session and loads of fun with the boys in the studio (Johannes Andersson, Bhav aka Knightstarr), and a very catchy pop tune with quite depressing lyrics came out the other end. Just typically me…”
In addition to garnering support from the likes of Line of Best Fit, NME, Clash, Pop Justice and Wonderland, MY has racked up over a million streams and been included on influential taste-making playlists around the world.
With a DIY attitude and a plethora of music lined up, MY’s heavy duty pop songs fizz with rock’n’roll energy and bare bones emotion. Honesty, dark lyrics, guitars and nature, wrapped up in pop brilliance. This is MY.
