Featured quote: Dave Sitek on working on Weezer (The Black Album), Black Album bio - November 2018.


I view the album as a rubber band and each finger is a song, and it pulls it apart and snaps it back into place. I think there’s certainly fidelity or instrumentation choices that are wildly different, but if you step back further, I think that can be said about life. You’re still going through the experience in the same vehicle. If I do my job right, you’ll be able to look at this as a complete body of work. “Can't Knock the Hustle” has some aspects to it — the thread is the identity of the song — the fidelity of the song is quite different in each one. When I sent over “Can't Knock the Hustle” I fully intended to be fired on the spot. When I wasn’t, I figured they were into taking chances. There’s a lot of moments lyrically that speak to the Weezer that I knew, but they also speak to people who don’t know who Weezer is. Let’s service those people too. I kind of make drug music for drug people. I try to preserve that sense of wonder. I wasn’t pressured in any way by anyone to sound by anything.

- Dave Sitek, November 2018
