Weezer may have delayed the release of their new album Everything Will Be Alright In The End by one week, but they’re still keeping themselves in the news.
Yesterday the band teased a collaboration with Bethany Cosentino of Best Coast by previewing “Go Away,” a new track from their upcoming ninth album. The track features vocals from Cosentino, who also co-wrote the song. She tweeted about the duet:
Well- I co-wrote + am featured on a song on the new Weezer album so basically, all my teenage dreams… http://t.co/BHHLPCVWfR

Check out a snippet of the appropriately summery track below:
In other (weirder) Weezer news, it appears that a television sitcom pilot is in the works for Fox based on frontman Rivers Cuomo’s college life. The show is called “DeTour,” and while there’s still a good chance it may never get to air, it has a compelling premise: the Hollywood Reporter describes it as “the story of a 30-something rock star who, unable to rationalize his success and worried that he may not have the tools to repeat it, walks away from the spotlight at the height of his fame in an effort to rediscover the parts of his life he missed while he was busy becoming a massive success.” This describes Cuomo’s experience when returning to college in the ’90s after Weezer hit it big. The show is being penned by Psych-creator Steve Franks.
Everything Will Be Alright In The End is scheduled for release on October 7.
