Future Projects

I mentioned some upcoming projects in chat on December 7, 2020. There's Small Project, Big Project 1 (on hold), Big Project 2, VW, OKH, Next 3, Next 4, and my Barry Manilow solo album. There's the video game song. The fav band cover song. Well nowadays I just work on Next 4.

December 9, 2020; I got Jake's comments on the first draft of next three.

January 6, 2021; I just turned in the first draft of next4 to Jake. It's going to be the most difficult of all 4 albums to get right but we're off to a great start.

January 26, 2021; in the LA Times article, I referenced a movie-musical I'm working on about the life of Buddha, tentatively titled "Buddha Superstar." Also, there are two other album ideas: one tentatively titled “Happy Chill", in the style of "Island in the Sun"; another evokes Franz Ferdinand or the Clash, "dance music, but it feels like a band.”

On January 30, 2021, I chatted in the hood about what the Cuomilow (Manilow-esque) album could be; it would be mostly songs about romantic relationships. And mostly ballads. More sophisticated in terms of chord progressions and key changes. Also more lush orchestra rather than Abbey road retro strings. I was thinking of it as my first solo record rather than a band record.

Weezer Seasons

In several separate interviews, I talk about the idea of possibly doing a collection of four seasonally-based, themed albums. In i news UK on January 21st I mention that in 2022, I want to release four seasonal albums, each with corresponding theme (“Happy, chill, stress-free for spring, lots of Elliott Smith-style loss and sadness for winter, and maybe fall could be dance-rock, like Franz Ferdinand”).

Then in NPR on January 29th, I elaborate that we're pretty sure the next idea is going to be called "Seasons," and it's a four-album collection. Each of the four albums comes out on the first day of the relevant season, and each album will have a very different musical and lyrical theme. Spring can be a very breezy, carefree acoustic-type album, whereas fall is going to be dance rock. So I've got the four folders going in Dropbox. I'm having a great time.

On February 9, 2021 in an interview in The Forty Five, I give a few more details on this project, that we're working on a four-album set right now. I think they’re going to be eight songs a piece. They’re called Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter and together they’re called Weezer Seasons; and the first one will drop on the first day of spring 2022.

February 16, 2021: Aww yeah jake loves dorothy from summer

Buddha Superstar

In that same February 9, 2021 interview in The Forty Five, I confirmed that I am working on a movie-musical called Buddha Superstar with the Broadway producer responsible for the Green Day musical. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do, and I can’t believe it’s taken me this long. I think I just needed somebody else to come along and really encourage me.
