Weezer have announced one of their most exciting projects to date: SZNZ, a seasonal collection of four EPs. Already mythical across the internet, SZNZ will, fittingly, be released at the start of every season via Crush Music/Atlantic Records. Each EP will offer its own palette of colors, creatures, and emotions to explore. They’re also being created in real time, made in tandem with the season themselves; the band only just finished SZNZ: Spring, and have yet to begin work on SZNZ: Summer, SZNZ: Autumn, and SZNZ: Winter.
SZNZ: Spring, which was produced by Jake Sinclair, Ethan Gruska, and Suzy Shinn, will be released this Sunday, March 20th, which is the spring equinox. It features the band’s new single, “A Little Bit Of Love,” which can be heard below.
Weezer will be debuting “A Little Bit Of Love” on March 21st as the first installment of a seasonal residency they will be doing throughout the year on Jimmy Kimmel Live!. The four piece are the first band to ever do a residency on the acclaimed late night show.
The four SZNZ EPs each feature a song that interpolates a movement from Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, which was one of the original source inspirations for the project, along with Pagan myths, religious rituals, magic, Shakespeare, and more. Lyrics juxtapose ancient and modern elements right next to each other in a seamless way that only Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo can make feel relatable and relevant, a lyrical framework he began on 2021’s acclaimed orchestral album OK Human and continues deftly here.
