Hey, so Weezer has another new album on the way. It’s called Pacific Daydream, and it’s coming out October 27 via Crush Music/Atlantic Records. Pacific Daydream will be the band’s eleventh studio album, and third album in four years. You crazy kids and your regularly occurring Weezer albums. In my day — I am 78 years old — we had to wait four years just to be disappointed by one Weezer album!

Accompanying the announcement of Pacific Daydream is a video for a brand-new song, “Mexican Fender.” In addition to the sound of distorted electric guitars, it features a seagull lusting after a woman at the beach, stealing things like an ice pop, a flower, a set of car keys and, wouldn’t you know it, a Weezer frisbee, in hopes of…I guess, sleeping with her?

Mr. Seagull takes things a little too far however, when he attempts to steal a poor passerby’s entire purse, and receives a scolding from the woman he loves, instead of what he really wants — which, to clarify again: must be inter-species sex? But, then she feels bad for some reason…and goes over to give the seagull a kiss on the head? Weird. Oh, then after the credits, the woman sits on the beach at night, eating a small barbecued bird that we can only assume is the seagull. It’s a bizarre video.

To refresh your memory from two paragraphs ago, Pacific Daydream is out on October 28. The full tracklist has yet to be revealed (for some nonsensical, Weezer-y reason), but you can pre-order it here on vinyl, or CD, or both as a part of various merch bundles. But first, judge for yourself whether or not that smutty, godless seagull deserved it by watching the “Mexican Fender” video below.
