SZNZ: Winter is an EP by Weezer, the fourth and final in the SZNZ series of EPs. It was released on December 21, 2022 (the first day of winter).
Rivers Cuomo described Weezer's planned winter-themed album in early 2021 as stylistically similar to the works of Elliott Smith, featuring "lots of loss and despair and kind of quiet." He has also stated that “I had the thought that winter sounds more like the original pre-blue album Weezer then The Blue Album does. There hasn't been this much acoustic guitar and finger picking in Weezer since our first year together”. Cuomo later reaffirmed this opinion on Conan O’Brien’s podcast ‘Conan needs a friend’ (episode titled “Rivers Cuomo”
