Over the weekend Weezer shared a band new song, “Thank God For Girls,” via a semi lyric video for the song (I say semi because only some of the lyrics appear on the screen). In the humorous clip a man is fed cannoli by a woman in a pastry shop. A more official, full-on video for the song is also promised by the band. The amazing cover art features Pope Francis being fawned over by adoring female fans.

Weezer’s most recent full-length album was last year’s Everything Will Be Alright in the End. Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo had this to say about “Thank God For Girls” via a post on Weezer’s Facebook page:

“Oh my god you guys, the new single is amazing! After we played it last night, I turned to my plus one and said, with glee, ‘it’s no Back to the Shack!! Hands down Thank God for Girls is the far, far better song.’ I’m no music critic but I have no problem sharing my opinion on this.

I will say the band seems to be putting their all into it. There’s a spoken intro that reminded me of ‘Miss Sweeney’ and a really pretty classic Weezer guitar driven melody. And Scott plays the keyboard on parts of it. I love the abrupt acapella ending, it showcases my voice.

The lyrics sound pretty out there and remind me of my tumblr work. Very unique, very different, a bit dark. (I especially love the Adam lyric parts) ... that last line is gold.

I’m not a huge fan of rapped out sections in songs but there’s a lot of cool work going on here with harmonies. I think the music is really great, I’m a huge fan of organs being used and piano in the verse.

It’s a perfect mix of weezer past and future. The chorus soars on melodic wings. It rocks sooooo hard. I can’t really compare it to anything specific we’ve ever done. But I can’t wait for more!

I think this may be a big hit single. I hope I’m not overselling it but I think it’s great! (adventurous, brave, fun, compelling, rocking, and I just LOVE it.)

I love this song, I love weezer, and I love you! =w= OCTOBER 13!!! BUCKLE UP, HERE WE GO!
