Alone IV: The Blue-Pinkerton Years is a digital compilation by Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo, consisting of demos ranging from 1992 through 1997, from before the release of Weezer's debut album until after the release of the band's sophomore album, Pinkerton. The compilation was sold on the demo storefront on Cuomo's personal website, riverscuomo.com, on November 22, 2020. The compilation Alone III: The Pinkerton Years, previously only available as a CD packaged with the book The Pinkerton Diaries in 2011, is included in its entirety as part of the Alone IV bundle. Like other compilations sold on riverscuomo.com, it is not an album in the conventional sense; it is instead a folder of MP3s accessible through the file hosting service Dropbox or through Cuomo's music streaming website/mobile app, Weezify.
