Hear Weezer’s new tune, ‘Back to the Shack’

Alternative punk-pop band Weezer have premiered their first new song since 2010, “Back to the Shack,” via their official YouTube channel. The catchy song will arrive on the band’s upcoming new album, “Everything Will Be Alright in the End,” which Rivers Cuomo and the guys will release this fall.

“Back to the Shack” got its official release today via iTunes, kicking off with Cuomo crooning the longing lyrics, “Sorry guys, I didn’t realize, that I needed you so much.” The group will perform the tune live for the first time Wednesday (July 23) on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.”

Weezer tapped a familiar musician to twiddle the knobs for “Everything Will Be Alright in the End”: Cars frontman Ric Ocasek. He also served as the producer for Weezer’s chart-topping 1994 “Blue Album” and 2001 “Green Album.” Cuomo told Entertainment Weekly that the new album is a perfect fit for fans of the band’s earlier work. “If you took the ‘Pinkerton’ band and then play all the other records—that’s what we sound like now,” he said. “Bombastic, loose, kind of booming. This record sounds like it’s going to have the tight structure of ‘Blue Album’ with a little bit more abandon like ‘Pinkerton’”
