Weezer Go Old School With New Song Cleopatra

(Radio.com) After finding some success with "Back to the Shack," Weezer have revealed their second single (one of many they previously teased) from upcoming album, Everything Will Be Alright in the End, and it is something perhaps unexpected from the group: a throwback to their classic sound.

Opening with ramshackle acoustic guitar strums, "Cleopatra" begins with a stomp-clap sound similar to what The Lumineers and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros have brought to alternative radio in recent years.

But Rivers Cuomo's subdued vocals in the verse give way to a chorus that is simple in its repetition of the title's namesake. By the time the song builds to Cuomo reaching for higher notes and rap-rock second refrain (a la "Buddy Holly"), the song has painted a portrait of vintage Weezer. More hear here.
