After a string of albums released over just as many years, Weezer have played it slow and steady with their ninth studio album, opting to release videos every Wednesday (Weezer Wednesday, what else?) chronicling the record’s budding progress.
Occasionally that’ll mean new material, as with this week’s episode. In a new clip, the rock band released a small snippet of a new song titled “Ain’t Got Nobody.”
The 38-second video, in which about half is the new song at hand, features an old Ford getting started up through a black-and-white lens. Fiddling with the radio, the driver eventually settles on the Weezer track, which is equal parts familiar and new at this point, given its typical chugging guitar sound despite being unreleased until now.
A choir of backing vocals from the band surface a little ways later that vocalizes the song’s title before frontman Rivers Cuomo croons the chorus: “Ain’t got nobody, ain’t got nobody / Ain’t got nobody to really love me.”
