Weezer Confirms New Deluxe Edition of The Blue Album

Along with the announcement of their new “Voyage to the Blue Planet” 2024 tour in celebration of The Blue Album’s 30th anniversary, Weezer will also be releasing a deluxe version of their seminal 1994 debut this year.

Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo confirmed the new deluxe version during an interview on Audacy Check In, and mentioned that there are unreleased Weezer tracks about to be unearthed. “They just sent me this giant box set with like four albums in it, so I was just looking at it before I walked in here,” Cuomo told Audacy host Kevan Kenny, “There’re a lot of old show recordings and rehearsal recordings. Like very early Weezer.”

When asked if Cuomo knew the release date of the new tunes, he couldn’t say much, but does assume that they’ll be out before Weezer embarks on their “Voyage to the Blue Planet” tour in September. Elsewhere in the interview with Audacy, Cuomo discusses the new 30th anniversary tour with The Flaming Lips and Dinosaur Jr., recording The Blue Album with The Cars’ Ric Ocasek, and how the band almost gave their song “Hash Pipe” to Ozzy Osbourne. Watch the full interview below.

Weezer’s “Voyage to the Blue Planet” tour kicks off in Minneapolis on September 4th, and before that, the band will play some select shows in the US (including Shaky Knees Festival) and a co-headlining run with Smashing Pumpkins in the UK. Get tickets to Weezer’s 2024 tour here.
