Weezer’s eigth album named Hurley, with a picture of Hurley on the cover

I thought this was a joke when I first saw it, but it’s for real!

Weezer’s upcoming 8th album is named after Jorge Garcia’s character on Lost, Hurley.

As Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo tells Spinner, the album’s name came easily once they settled on the photo.
“We struggled super hard trying to come up with an album title, trying to find some kind of phrase that summed up the whole aesthetic behind the album: ‘Heavy Mental,’ ‘Smaller Than Life,'” Cuomo says. “I was coming up with all kinds of stuff, but ultimately, we just went with some random word that doesn’t really have anything to do with anything. I just loved this photo of Jorge Garcia — it just had this amazing vibe. We didn’t want to do a fourth self-titled record and we knew people would refer to it as ‘the Hurley record’ even if left it without that title, so we just called it ‘Hurley.’ No words are on the cover because all we wanted was his amazing face.”

Weezer announce 6th album!


Emerging from post-nuptials bliss and post-Harvard-degree glee, Rivers Cuomo – – the bespectacled frontman of sweater-clad pop-rock icons Weezer – – has revealed his band will release a new album early next year. “Weezer is just polishing up a batch of songs for a recording session that is going to start at the beginning of July,” Cuomo wrote in a post on Weezer’s website. “This will be the final recording session for our 6th album, which we aim to put out in the first half of 2008.”

I know I’m really old and all – but I still think this is cool news.
