Looks like Weezer’s stab at a cover, Toto’s “Africa,” was not a one-time thing. The band will be releasing an album of covers, ‘The Teal Album,’ which will include a Black Sabbath’s “Paranoid.” An audio clip can be heard below.
Other tunes on the album include, A-HA‘s “Take On Me,” Tears for Fears’ “Everybody Wants To Rule The World,” The Eurythmics’ “Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)” and Michael Jackson‘s “Billie Jean.” There are also a couple of older tunes, Ben E. King‘s “Stand By Me,” The Turtles’ “Happy Together” and ELO‘s “Mr. Blue Sky.”
At the same time, Weezer have a new album of originals, ‘The Black Album,’ due to arrive on March 1. The band will be on the road this spring, touring with the Pixies. They will also play Coachella‘s main stage in April.
