Weezer detail new album ‘Pacific Daydream’, listen to new track ‘Mexican Fender’

Power pop veterans Weezer have detailed their eleventh studio album ‘Pacific Daydream’, due for release on October 27 through Atlantic Records.

Alongside the announcement, the band released a second track titled ‘Mexican Fender’, which sonically is a step away from the bright sunshine pop of previously released lead single ‘Feels Like Summer’.

Weezer released the following statement with the announcement:

“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.” – Zhuangzi

The band will make a short stop in the UK for some October dates:

Oct 23: O2 Academy, Leeds

Oct 24: O2 Academy, Glasgow

Oct 25: O2 Apollo, Manchester

Oct 27: O2 Academy, Birmingham

Oct 28: SSE Arena, Wembley, London
