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.
