Weezer have shared two new songs, “High As a Kite” and “Living in LA,” the former via a Nathan Presley-directed video that channels Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. Both are taken from the band’s upcoming album Weezer (The Black Album), due out March 1 via Crush Music/Atlantic. Watch and listen below.

They previously shared two singles from The Black Album: “Zombie Bastards” (via a video) and “Can’t Knock the Hustle,” which 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. The album was produced by TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek and, in a first for the band, the songs were entirely written by Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo on piano.

Weezer recently shared another album, Weezer (The Teal Album), which is an album of covers of hit songs from the 20th century. Weezer surprise released the album last month and it includes their cover of Toto’s 1982 hit “Africa,” which was a big hit for Weezer last year. Weezer (The Teal Album) is out now via Crush Music/Atlantic. It includes covers of classics by Michael Jackson, Tears for Fears, The Eurythmics, TLC, Electric Light Orchestra, and more. They recently shared a video for their cover of a-ha’s “Take On Me,” but in a twist it starred the band Calpurnia, which is fronted by Finn Wolfhard of Stranger Things, who played a younger version of Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo.
