Last week, Weezer put out a new track called 'Hero', from their upcoming album 'Van Weezer.'
The song is a classic Weezer tune, and the lyrics speak about everybody needing a hero. The music video would've been one hell of a video to edit, with lots of different people handing a "thank you" note to eachother through split screens. The uplifting note is seen at the very end.
In the YouTube desciption the band wrote:
This one is for the stay at home dreamers, the zoom graduators, the sourdough bakers, and the essential workers.
So it seems as if this song is a thank you to everyone in the world right now, for trying their best during these weird times.
Van Weezer was supposed to be released this month, but the band announced that it'd be pushed back until a later date because of the pandemic.
“In the meantime, we’re working hard on getting you all the new Weezer you can handle including music and more surprises getting announced later this week.”
