Weezer releases new album with a 'Miami Vice' look

Weezer Teal Album Crush Music Atlantic Records

American band Weezer have released a surprise album of cover versions, but not everyone is happy.

Weezer won new fans with their cover of Toto's "Africa" a year ago, and now they've gone the whole hog.

The Teal Album dropped last night with no publicity or advertising, and is available to download from major online retailers now. Get backstage sneak peeks and a true view into our world as the fun and games unfold.

However, one song to draw the most attention from the band is TLC's "No Scrubs". Whether or not they're guilty of appropriation or not, one thing is clear: Weezer knows how to stay relevant.

"I'm listening to the No Scrubs cover and Weezer needs to be stopped y'all".

Another user described the album cover as "a slab of Miami Vice tinged sunshine in a grey, mournful January".

Listen to the No Scrubs cover below.

That's right: The Teal Album is full of straightforward covers of pop hits.

The Teal Album is the first of two new records Weezer will put out in 2019, with their Black Album set for release on March 1.
