In 2021 so far, Weezer has released two albums — OK Human and Van Weezer — and Rivers Cuomo says he’s got a bunch more coming.

Appearing on ABC’s Good Morning America on Friday to promote the upcoming Hella Mega tour with Green Day and Fall Out Boy, Cuomo said, “I’ve guess I’ve had a lot of time on my hands so I wrote four albums that we’ll put out next year. It’s called Seasons, and each album comes out on the first year of the season.”

Cuomo described the “spring” album as “happy chill,” the “fall” album as “dance-rock, Strokes-style,” followed by the “sad, acoustic, Elliot Smith-style” music for winter. He didn’t mention what summer will sound like.

Billie Joe Armstrong appeared on GMA with Cuomo, but when asked about plans for new Green Day music to follow their most recent single, “Pollyanna,” he said, “Not in the immediate future but you never know. We always get a wild hair and end up doing something. But right now, we’re just looking forward to the tour.”

Also on the show, Weezer performed “Hero” and Fall Out Boy did “Uma Thurman” to get fans hyped for the Hella Mega tour, which kicks off July 24.
