Weezer released a new album, Pacific Daydream, a couple of weeks back via Crush Music/Atlantic. Last night the band stopped by The Late Late Show with James Corden to perform “Happy Hour.” Watch it below, followed by their recently announced joint headlining tour dates with Pixies.

Back in March Weezer released a new song, “Feels Like Summer,” which is also on the album. That was followed by “Mexican Fender,” which was shared via a visual featuring a seagull obsessed with a woman in a bathing suit on the beach, and “Beach Boys,” which was shared via a visual that paid tribute to the classic 1960s band. They also shared “Weekend Warrior.” Weezer also stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to perform “Happy Hour.” Butch Walker produced Pacific Daydream. Weezer’s last album, Weezer (aka The White Album), came out in 2016. The new album, their eleventh, was initially intended to be the band’s The Black Album until the band realized it was a sunnier record. A press release says the songs are “reveries from a beach at the end of the world.”

Frontman Rivers Cuomo said in a press release that this Chinese proverb inspired the design behind the entire record: “Once upon a time, I, Chuang Chou, dreamt I was a butterfly, fluttering hither and thither, to all intents and purposes a butterfly. I was conscious only of my happiness as a butterfly, unaware that I was Chou. Soon I awaked, and there I was, veritably myself again. Now I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly, dreaming I am a man.”
