Slated for April 1st, the band will release a self-titled record that is consistent with the band’s other self-titled albums known as the Green Album, Blue Album, and Red Album. This one has already been christened the ‘White Album’ by fans.

In conjunction with the album news, the band has shared a music video for a new song, “King of the World”, which you can see below.

Singer Rivers Cuomo posted the following message on the band’s Facebook page:

Our new self titled album will be out on April 1st (this is not a joke), and we’re going on tour this summer (this is also not a joke). This album was inspired by my experiences hanging around the Westside of Los Angeles, which has been our home since Weezer began. Hanging out with people in Venice and Santa Monica, the beach, the Hare Krishnas, the Sikh on roller blades with the guitar, girls on Tinder within a 4 mile radius, seeing other bands, etc. I would just tweet out “does anybody wanna hang?” and then I’d get together with people who responded and talk about life. I love California. I wanted the album to have a Beach Boys sort of vibe to make you feel like you were there with us SoCal weirdos even if you’re in Milwaukee in December.

Weezer is planning a summer tour alongside Panic! At the Disco and Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness.

Here’s the video for track, King of the World”:
