SZNS (pronounced "Seasons") is the tentative title for an upcoming set of four albums by Weezer to be released in 2022.

Overview

Rivers Cuomo first mentioned the band's sixteenth album was in the concept phase on October 31, 2020, alluding to Jake Sinclair's involvement. Said Cuomo on the wall on riverscuomo.com, "Turned in the first draft of the NEXT NEXT NEXT album to Jake".[1]

The albums are currently slated to come out on the first day of each respective season in 2022.[2] The first album, to be released at the beginning of spring, has been described as a "very breezy, carefree acoustic-type album". It is tentatively titled Happy Chill and will be more inline with the style of "Island in the Sun".[3] Cuomo has described the winter album as conjuring the sound of ’90s singer-songwriters like Elliott Smith with "lots of loss and despair and kind of quiet." with autumn reflecting "dance-rock" artists like Franz Ferdinand.[4]

On March 25, 2021, Rivers Cuomo uploaded a photo to Instagram of the letters "SZNS" with the caption "2022".[5][6]

On April 29, Rivers told members of Riverchat that the song "Pacific Sunset" had been cut from consideration, though he was still interested in repurposing the bridge. He claimed the song was "not good enough for SZNS" and after a member commented that they appreciated the band's commitment to high standards following OK Human, he replied "We've left [OK Human] in the dust".[7]
