The song was premiered on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 show noon Wednesday. The song was then available on iTunes and Spotify at midnight, and the video was released on YouTube at eight this the morning.
The video shows a little kid (a mini Rivers Cuomo) Snapchatting and waiting for someone "down on tower 28". The kid's love arrives: a beautiful woman body builder, and they dance around until she kisses him on the cheek and leaves. (Shout out to Weezer for using a woman with a body, instead of the traditional supermodel. #Feminism).
The song is about Cuomo wrestling with the idea of LA girls. He loves them, but then again he also doesn't: "LA Girlz/Please act your age/Sweeten up your lemonade/And meet me down at tower 28". The video parallels this struggle. The woman and kid look like they should not be together, but he likes her and they have fun together. It has a classic Weezer sound, grungy and energetic with a rock and roll vibe.
White Album is available for preorder on iTunes, and it is set to be released on April 1. "LA Girlz" is available to stream on Spotify. Weezer will be touring the US with Panic! At The Disco starting in June.
