After Weezer‘s tenth album, better known as the White Album, was released in April of 2016, they started to work on their next album the Black Album. On March 15,2017, the California-native, alternative rock band released their single as part of a teaser for the Black Album.

Weezer’s singer and songwriter, Rivers Cuomo, discussed about their direction of the next album. :^)

“The next album is going to feel like an urban environment, night-time and gritty and hopefully a lot more modern sounds, synthesised sounds, samples maybe. I like to break away from the distorted power-chord thing but it’s hard ‘cos it works so well.”

Although some of their fanbase was rioting over this new sound and chapter for the already 20 years of music they have produced, I think that their ability to adapt to the new generation that will listen to their music is a good change that can help maintain and still grow their fanbase. The new song contrasts well from their last album because the White Album was more light-hearted and happy while the Black Album is suppose to focus on more emotional and serious themes in their songs.If you read the lyrics, “Feels Like Summer” is about some woman that he lost in the summer, as if she died. “We decided to skip spring entirely and go straight to summer. Our new single ‘Feels Like Summer’ from our forthcoming album (coming this summer).”

Lyrics (If you want to read his comments)-

Climbing up the tower
Just a boy and his computer
I’m still in my bathrobe
Hiding in the shadows
I’m not used to losing
Bye, bye, sugar blue eyes
Go home with the angels
Thank you for being so kind

I’m holding on and I don’t want to let you go

Yeah it feels like summer
Yeah it feels like summer to me
Yeah it feels like summer
Yeah it feels like summer to me
And she was a lover to me, to me, to me, to me

Which way is the graveyard?
I’m an iceberg with a warm heart
I’m spiritual, not religious
I’m a Libra, if it matters
Shattered by an email
Your words will fade away
Castle built in the sand
Will only last one day

I’m holding on and I don’t want to let you go

Yeah it feels like summer
Yeah it feels like summer to me
Yeah it feels like summer

Yeah it feels like summer

Yeah it feels like summer to me
Yeah it feels like summer
And she was a lover to me

June bride, shine so bright
Flowers in her hair, but it just ain’t right
June bride, shine so bright
Flowers in her hair, we look good together, oh yeah
We look good together, oh yeah

Yeah it feels like summer
Yeah it feels like summer to me
Yeah it feels like summer
And she was a lover to me
Let me see the smile, stay with me awhile
I cried for you, you were the song in my life
Let me see the smile, stay with me awhile
I cry for you, you were the song in my life
