25 years ago this September (!) - Weezer released their second album Pinkerton. The band says their follow up to the Blue Album "was supposed to be magnum opus and it just got destroyed”
Many 'die hard' Weezer fans will be excited to hear that the band's singer - Rivers Cuomo - is interested in revisiting the album (!) - saying he'd like to reworking the songs in the style that they recorded their latest album - OK Human - with no electric guitars and an orchestra accompaniment.
Cuomo told Apple Music’s Zane Lowe -
“Those are the most complex songs and they’re the most emotional songs ... And yet, the way we recorded is so raw, four-piece rock noise. I’d be really interested to hear that with an orchestra.”
Weezer: ‘OK Human’ and Complexity of ‘Pinkerton’
Despite being considered a flop that was 'almost game over for the band' , Cuomo said that he still loves ‘Pinkerton’ – especially his vocals.
“Especially, I love the sound of my voice ... It’s very low in the mix. I’d love to hear a remix of the vocal louder, but there’s just so much pain and vulnerability in my voice. I don’t know if this is disillusioning at all, but I think some of the pain you hear in my voice [on ‘Pinkerton’] is actually physical."
We have nothing to lose in hoping this happens ... in fact - we think it'd be El Scorcho
