Weezer reveals 'Raditude' cover art: The quick brown dog jumps over the hiding cat

I’m pretty sure the fine gentlemen of Weezer just won themselves a spot on my album covers of the year list. Behold the image that will grace Oct. 27′s Raditude, to your left (spotted via Idolator). Is that or is that not the greatest LOLcat/dog combo you have seen today? (Spoiler: The cat is hiding in the lower left-hand quadrant of the cover, in case you don’t immediately see it.)

According to a post on Spinner.com, Weezer mastermind Rivers Cuomo found this pic while flipping through the pages of National Geographic, which apparently publishes adorable photographs of dogs leaping across suburban living rooms now. Also, the dog’s name is Sidney.

Aren’t you glad you know that? Register your thoughts on this striking image in the comments, below.

New Weezer song leaked: 'If You Are Wondering If I Want You To (I Want You To)'

Stereogum is streaming a new track today from the power-pop foursome’s upcoming seventh album (seventh! wow, I haz an old), and — hip hip – it actually sounds pretty good.

On the shambolic back-porch rocker “If You Are Wondering If I Want You To (I Want You To” Rivers Cuomo and co. sound positively jaunty — if not a little/lot bit like Conor Oberst‘s more recent, upbeat work with the Mystic Valley Band.

To us, it seems like a happy return to form after a disappointing-ish sixth outing, their 2008 self-titled release (a.k.a. the Red Album). But you be the judge; listen below and tell us if you’re left wanting — or wondering:

Rivers Cuomo's new DVD: An exclusive full-song 'El Scorcho' clip

My teenaged self thought that Weezer’s Pinkerton was a top-five album of all time, easy. My adult self still thinks it’s by far the finest piece of music that can be fairly described as "emo." Both of us are beyond pleased to debut an exclusive clip of Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo performing Pinkerton‘s "El Scorcho" with a few dozen lucky fans at a Long Beach, Calif. record shop. The clip comes from Not Alone — Rivers Cuomo & Friends Live at Fingerprints, which hit stores today as a DVD and EP, but right now the Music Mix is the only place you can find it online. Marvel at the still-relevant Green Day references below. While you’re at it, see if you can figure out why Rivers wore an old-timey engineer’s outfit to this singalong. We’re all ears.
