OK reader, play OK Human by Weezer.
Just a week after releasing the album’s lead single “All My Favorite Songs,” the band unveiled their 14th LP on Friday (Jan. 28).
“Hold on to your hard drives,” the band wrote announcing the album on Jan. 18. “OK Human, the new album, arrives 1/29.”
About the album-making process, Weezer tweeted, “During the summer of COVID-19 we grabbed our masks, hit the studio & began to chip away at what is now known as OK Human. An album that was made by a handful of humans using only analog technologies (including a 38 piece orchestra) for all of you humans to consume.”
“OK Human was made at a time when humans-playing-instruments was a thing of the past,” the band continued. “All we could do is look back on ancient times when humans really mattered and when the dark tech-takeover fantasy didn’t exist.”
“We used our instruments to connect to the 1960’s and 1970’s and, with the orchestra, back to the 18th and 19th centuries,” the thread concluded. “We had no click track or loops or hi-tech sounds. Not even an electric guitar.”
OK Human-themed merch is available to purchase here. Listen to the 12-track album in full below.
