Weezer album cover unvelied

The album cover was unveiled yesterday for the upcoming Weezer album, "Hurley", and it was reportedly in place before the album's name. The cover is a photo of actor Jorge Garcia, who played the character Hurley from the ABC show "Lost". The band's frontman Rivers Coumo says that once it was decided to use the photo for the cover, the album's title was an easy decision.

"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 said. "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 we 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."

The album is due in stores September 14th and will be the band's first indie release.
