Weezer’s very, very good new album ‘The White Album‘ is out today (April 1st) so to celebrate the band took to The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon for a live airing of ‘King of the World‘. Check it out below.
“The inspiration behind the songs were my experiences hanging around the Westside of Los Angeles, which has been our home since Weezer began,” explains Rivers. “Hanging out with people in Venice and Santa Monica, the beach, the Hare Krishnas, the Sikh on roller blades with the guitar, girls on Tinder within a 4 mile radius, seeing other bands, the kids from La Sera. I would just tweet out “does anybody wanna hang?” and then I’d get together with people who responded and talk about life. I love California. I wanted the album to make you feel like you were there with us SoCal weirdos even if you’re in Milwaukee in December.”
