Weezer's upcoming album is a tribute to Van Halen - the band just wishes Eddie Van Halen could have heard it.
The album, titled Van Weezer, was originally set for a May 2020 release - but like many things in 2020, it was delayed due to the pandemic. Unfortunately, Eddie Van Halen didn't make it to next year, passing away on October 6th.
Frontman Rivers Cuomo says he wishes Eddie could have heard the album, saying "I don't know if it would have meant anything to him, but it would have been cool for us."
Van Weezer will finally be released on May 7th. You can hear one of the songs on the album below!
