Artist of the Week: Weezer
Weezer fans, rejoice! The misfit kings of alternative rock are back with a brand new single that is favorite song worthy.
“All My Favorite Songs” is the name of Weezer’s infectious new tune, which explores how over-and-under connected we have become due to the combination of technology and social distancing.
In a series of tweets, the band revealed the backstory behind their new music, explaining how it only uses analog technologies and instruments for a more “human” experience. According to the posts, the band actually used a 38 piece orchestra and did not use any click tracks, loops or hi-tech sounds – “Not even an electric guitar.”
Presented by Capital One, ALTer EGO brings together the biggest names in alternative music for one epic night of rocking out. Going virtual this year, iHeartRadio’s ALTer EGO will feature unique performances from different venues, as well as special back-stage interviews and more.
