Written by frontman Rivers Cuomo, “Feels Like Summer” is the first recording shared from Weezer’s forthcoming 11th album, which is due to arrive sometime this summer. The as-yet-unnamed new album is the followup to their Grammy-nominated self-titled album, the so-called White Album which entered the UK top 20 last year.

About the new single the band said: “We decided to skip spring entirely and go straight to summer.” In a statement they added: “We’re also bringing the sunshine across the pond to the UK & Europe this fall for some headlining dates (very special guest to be announced).”
