Weezer have made the first track from their forthcoming self-titled sixth studio album available to stream on their website weezer.com.

The track “Pork And Beans” is also being released as a single this Thursady (April 24). The song, produced by Jacknife Lee was reportedly written by Rivers Cuomo as a reaction to Weezer’s record label Geffen demanding a more commercial record.

Cuomo namechecks hugely successful US producer Timbaland on the track, but sings “But I can do what the fuck I want.”

The new Weezer album, expected to be self-titled but also known as the ‘Red Album’ by fans is set for release on June 24.

The full tracklisting is:

‘Troublemaker’
‘The Greatest Man That Ever Lived (Variations on a Shaker Hymn)’
‘Pork and Beans’
‘Heart Songs’
‘Everybody Get Dangerous’
‘Dreamin’
‘Thought I Knew’
‘Cold Dark World’
‘Automatic’
‘The Angel and the One’


The deluxe edition has four extra tracks, which are:

‘Miss Sweeney’
‘Pig’
‘The Spider’
‘King’
