Weezer have announced their self-titled, tenth studio album (destined to be known by the color of the record’s cover art – “the white album”), which will be self-released on April 1st, 2016.

The first new song available from The White Album is a sun-bleached sing-along called “King Of The World” which you can check out below.

Weezer will also be embarking on a massive, nationwide U.S. co-headlining tour this summer with Panic! At The Disco but will be making two stops in the UK in Manchester and London for solo headline shows - see dates below.

"The inspiration behind the songs were my experiences hanging around the Westside of Los Angeles, which has been our home since Weezer began" comments front man Rivers Cuomo "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, the kids from La Sera. 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 make you feel like you were there with us SoCal weirdos even if you’re in Milwaukee in December.
