Weezer is preparing for the drop of their new album Raditude, set to be released on November 3rd, by teasing fans with a 33 second trailer of the music video for the album’s first single “(If You’re Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To.”
Raditude, said to be named by The Office’s Rainn Wilson, is a follow up to the band’s June 2008 Red Album. It is another disc to fall on Weezer’s catchy, pop-punk side, as opposed to their more mellow, thoughtful albums like the Blue Album. Goofy track titles like “I’m Your Daddy” and “Tired of Sex” have listeners expecting some pretty good-humored songs.
“(If You’re Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To” was leaked onto the internet this summer when Walmart.com posted the song up for purchase 9 days before its original release date. Weezer officially released the track two days later.
The video for the song was directed by Mark Webb, director of (500) Days of Summer (sweet!) as well as many other music videos, and stars Cloverfield’s Odette Yustman. It will premier on Babelgum but for now check out the teaser trailer:
