Weezer has released a new acoustic EP today recorded in conjunction with Spotify. The project finds the band doing sparse renditions of five tracks from across its colorful catalog: “Island in the Sun” (2001’s The Green Album); “Buddy Holly” (1994’s The Blue Album); “King of the World” and “California Kids” (this year’s The White Album). “Slave”, off 2002’s Maladroit, closes the collection.
The White Album selections might be a little too soon to appreciate, but it’s pretty cool hearing Rivers Cuomo’s ache front and center on “Buddy Holly”. How about “El Scorcho” next time, guys?
