Weezer reveal artwork for Hurley

Weezer have revealed the artwork for their upcoming album ‘Hurley’ which features none other than a picture of Hurley from the hit TV series Lost, a role played by actor Jorge Garcia. Speaking to Spinner, Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo had this to say:

“We struggled super hard trying to come up with an album title, trying to find some kind of phrase that summed up the whole aesthetic behind the album: ‘Heavy Mental,’ ‘Smaller Than Life,'” Cuomo says. “I was coming up with all kinds of stuff, but ultimately, we just went with some random word that doesn’t really have anything to do with anything. I just loved this photo of Jorge Garcia — it just had this amazing vibe. We didn’t want to do a fourth self-titled record and we knew people would refer to it as ‘the Hurley record’ even if left it without that title, so we just called it ‘Hurley.’ No words are on the cover because all we wanted was his amazing face.”
