Weezer has long been teasing The Black Album and now they have finally shared its first single, "Can't Knock the Hustle," and announced that the album is due out in 2019 via Crush Music/Atlantic. "Can't Knock the Hustle" was shared via a music video that stars Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz as a ride share driver dealing with an amorous couple in the back seat. Guy Blelloch directed the video. Watch it below. Weezer have also announced some new co-headlining tour dates with Pixies for next year and those dates are below too.

Back in May a teenaged Weezer fan named Mary convinced the band to cover Toto's 1982 hit "Africa" via a jokey Twitter account fittingly named "weezer cover africa by toto." At first Weezer covered Toto's "Rosanna" instead, a song also featured on their Toto IV album (it's the opening track, "Africa" is the closing track). But then a week later they actually covered "Africa" and it ended up becoming Weezer's biggest hit in years. Toto had previously announced their intentions to cover Weezer's "Hash Pipe" and then they did. Then Weezer shared a video of their "Africa" cover that starred "Weird Al" Yankovic as Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo in a recreation of Weezer's 1994 video for "Undone - The Sweater Song."
