Weezer details upcoming album 'OK Human,' dropping this month

A new Weezer album is arriving in less than two weeks.

OK Human, the companion record to the forthcoming Van Weezer, will be released January 29. Lead single “All My Favorite Songs” will drop this Thursday, January 21, at midnight ET.

Frontman Rivers Cuomo first teased OK Human — a play on Radiohead‘s OK Computer — in a 2019 interview with Entertainment Weekly. In the article, he called OK Human a more “piano-based” counterpart to the guitar-heavy Van Weezer, an obvious reference to Van Halen.

Since then, Weezer hasn’t mentioned OK Human much, until last week, when the band uploaded a mysterious spoken-word track hinting at the album’s incoming arrival.

Van Weezer, meanwhile, is due out May 7. That record, which includes the singles “The End of the Game” and “Hero,” was originally supposed to be released last May, but was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Here’s the OK Human track list:

“All My Favorite Songs”
“Aloo Gobi”
“Grapes of Wrath”
“Playing My Piano”
“Mirror Image”
“Bird with a Broken Wing”
“Dead Roses”
“Everything Happens for a Reason”
“Here Comes the Rain”
“La Brea Tar Pits”
