Weezer Premiered Their New Album On Their Own Island In Fortnite
The island, known as Weezer World, features a Jukebox that plays the new album, which includes recent single High As A Kite.
“And now it’s finally time to kick back & relax on your very own island in the sun,” tweeted Weezer. “Stop by the one of a kind Weezer World amusement park in Season 8 of Fortnite. Find it in creative mode and listen to the sweet sounds of The Black Album while playing Fortnite Creative.”
Rivers Cuomo followed up the reveal by tweeting “There’s a song on the Black Album about Fortnite and Juuls.”
Geoff Keighley from The Games Awards tweeted gameplay footage of the island, which features a giant, flashing Weezer logo. If anyone knows where we can get one for our office, let us know.
