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."
