“Happy release day to Weezer’s ‘Black Album’. I owe it to Twitter that I was able to be a part of writing a song for this. Endlessly thankful to Rivers for letting me be a part of his process…” Grace wrote on Twitter.

“How many times in life do you get to say that you helped write a Weezer song? Today’s my fuckin daaaaayyyyyy!” she continued.

We’re so happy to have new Weezer music, and happy for Grace’s excitement about her part in the album.

Weezer’s 13th self-titled album dropped at midnight Friday after the band premiered it on Fortnite.

As part of the game’s eighth season, a “Weezer World” popped up in the universe of Fortnite. Players are allowed to explore this new island all while listening to four songs from the album before they were been released.
