Unos días después de anunciar su regreso con Thank God For Girls esta noche hemos podido disfrutar del estreno del single, su primera canción después de la salida el año pasado de Everything Will Be Alright In The End. El estreno se ha llevaco a cabo a través de un vídeo (no oficial) algo loco y llega justo después del aplaudidísimo diseño de portada para su nueva canción.

El anuncio de este nuevo single nos cogió a muchos por sorpresa, ya que Everything Will Be Alright In The End había visto la luz hacía prácticamente un año y tuvo una filtración previa a través de una grabación ofrecida en iHeartRadio, cita en la que tocaron temas como ‘My name is Jonas‘ o ‘Hash pipe‘.

El single está disponible a través de Crush Music y llega acompañado de esta nota, publicada por Rivers Cuomo en el Facebook del grupo, que dejamos disponible justo después del visionado del clip:

Oh my god you guys, the new single is amazing! After we played it last night, I turned to my plus one and said, with glee, “it’s no Back to the Shack!! Hands down Thank God for Girls is the far, far better song. I’m no music critic but I have no problem sharing my opinion on this.

I will say the band seems to be putting their all into it. There’s a spoken intro that reminded me of “Miss Sweeney” and a really pretty classic Weezer guitar driven melody. And Scott plays the keyboard on parts of it. I love the abrupt acapella ending, it showcases my voice.

The lyrics sound pretty out there and remind me of my tumblr work. Very unique, very different, a bit dark. (I especially love the Adam lyric parts) … that last line is gold.

I’m not a huge fan of rapped out sections in songs but there’s a lot of cool work going on here with harmonies. I think the music is really great, I’m a huge fan of organs being used and piano in the verse.

It’s a perfect mix of weezer past and future. The chorus soars on melodic wings. It rocks sooooo hard. I can’t really compare it to anything specific we’ve ever done. But I can’t wait for more!

I think this may be a big hit single. I hope I’m not overselling it but I think it’s great! (adventurous, brave, fun, compelling, rocking, and I just LOVE it.)

I love this song, I love weezer, and I love you! =w= OCTOBER 13!!! BUCKLE UP, HERE WE GO!
