New Weezer album, single

If there is one thing you’ve got to give Weezer it is that they have quite the work ethic.

If they aren’t out touring the world, they are in the studio putting together the next album.

The band recently announced, via its website, its seventh studio album titled “Raditude” will be released Oct. 27, 2009.

No word on the tracklist yet, however there is a fresh single leaked, titled (“If You’re Wondering if I want you to) I want you to.”

The single will officially be released Aug. 25.

In typical Weezer fashion, the song is composed of a catchy pop-beat with River Cuomo singing “I want you to” over the melodic beats. A fast-paced acrostic guitar riff intros the song and surfaces throughout the three and a half minute song.

Raditude will follow Weezer’s June 2008’s third self-titled album commonly referred to as the Red Album, which featured the hit “Pork and Beans” and a breakthrough for the band “The Greatest Man That Ever Lived (Variations on a Shaker Hymn).”
