After repeatedly making headlines for various covers, Weezer have finally turned their attention to a new record. They’ve announced the Black Album—arriving some time next year—and released the visual for a single titled “Can’t Knock the Hustle.”

In typical Weezer fashion, the Jerry Media-produced video, is a tongue-in-cheek one, starring Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy as a rideshare driver. The single itself, produced by TV on the Radio’s Dave Sitek, is a funk-inspired number that signals Weezer may be detouring from their usual sound on the upcoming record. The Black Album is a follow-up to their 2016 full-length, the White Album, which debuted at number four on the Billboard 200. It was the band’s eighth album in a row to hit top ten.

Along with the Black Album announcement, Weezer also revealed tour dates with alt rock legends Pixie that’ll kick off in Louisville, Kentucky next March.
