The band's eleventh studio album release is taking shape.

By Hayden Wright

Weezer’s eleventh studio album Pacific Daydream is set for release October 27 and the band has just debuted a new song from the record: “Beach Boys.” The track is an homage to the titular surf rock icons, alluding to “perfect four-part harmonies” and turning up the radio for inspiration.

The band unveiled a track list for the album and a lyric video for “Beach Boys” which expands the album’s Southern California imagery. The band’s guiding aesthetic on Pacific Daydream is “reveries from a beach at the end of the world.”

When Weezer began work on their eleventh studio album, they intended to make a “Black” album in response to their acclaimed 2016 “White Album.” Instead, they found themselves writing and recording escapist fantasies about warm weather and mimosas, a change in direction they embraced.

A press release describes the album as sounding like “The Beach Boys and The Clash fell in love by the ocean and had one hell of an amazing baby.”
