The Weezer iTunes Pass launches today on the iTunes Store. The iTunes Pass gives fans access to new and exclusive music, video, remixes, art and other content from their favorite artists over a set period of time, delivered to their iTunes library as soon as they’re available.
Fans who purchase the Weezer iTunes Pass ($19.99) will receive a variety of content beginning on October 13th with a cover of The Clash’s “Should I Stay Or Should I Go” and continuing in weekly installments until November 24th. The Weezer iTunes Pass includes a deluxe version of the band’s new album Raditude plus exclusive additional tracks, live recordings, remixes, behind-the-scenes video footage and the music video for single “(If You’re Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To.”
Raditude appears on the heels of 2008’s The Red Album. This new offering sees the band trying a brand-new approach, choosing to collaborate with a wide variety of musicians, songwriters and producers. The result of this collaborative effort is a collection of songs that amplifies Weezer’s musical trademarks- deep-digging pop hooks and raucous rock riffs- while at the same time breaking new ground for the band. Raditude features appearances by Lil’ Wayne, Jermaine Dupri and even a host of traditional Indian musicians. Within these 10 songs lie boundless possibilities and ceaseless excitement, proof that Weezer remains a band that defies easy summations and can never be taken for granted, a band who has grown as they’ve opened their horizons.
From the subtly ironic but club-worthy “Can’t Stop Partying,” to the gleefully lascivious classic arena-rocker “The Girl Got Hot,” to the sleek electro groove of “I’m Your Daddy,” to the slow-building, anthemic “Love is the Answer” and the clanking, Motown-flavored”(If You’re Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To,” Raditude, like Weezer, is full of thrilling surprises. As Cuomo says, “It sounds like a roomful of people having a great time.”
