Weezer (The Teal Album) is the twelfth studio album by Weezer, released on January 24, 2019. It is composed of covers of other songs, including the now famous "Africa" cover.


The Teal Album consists of ten covers of various popular songs from the 20th century, ranging from a cover of Black Sabbath's "Paranoid" to "Africa" by Toto. It contains no originally written songs, making it the band's first and currently only covers album. After a successful internet fan campaign to get the band to release a cover of Toto's "Africa", the Teal album was released digitally on January 24, 2019, and had a physical release on March 8th, 2019.


The album was released on January 24, 2019 with no prior announcement. It peaked at #5 on the Billboard 200 within two weeks of its release.
