Weezer Announces 'The Black Album' and Shares First Single

A video for the song features Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz as a rideshare driver taking the longest drive of his life.

(October 11, 2018) -- Today, Weezer have revealed the first song from their forthcoming, long-anticipated record The Black Album, set for release in 2019 via Crush Music/Atlantic Records. The song -- entitled “Can’t Knock The Hustle” -- was produced by TV On The Radio’s Dave Sitek, with whom the band worked for the first time. The song premiered this morning via iHeartRadio at 8 am EST, and follows the band’s smash hit cover of “Africa” by Toto.

A video for the song, starring Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz as a rideshare driver taking the longest drive of his life, and produced by Jerry Media (founded by @FuckJerry), is also up now. Also, check out for some classic Weezer fun.
