Concerts aren't the only thing impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. Album releases are being delayed now too. Weezer has now said that they don't know yet when the new album, Van Weezer, will be released because they don't want to give a new date and then have to change it again. So for now, the band is telling fans to "stay tuned" and to help us do that, they've released "Hero," a new single from the album that is for "for the stay at home dreamers, the zoom graduators, the sourdough bakers, and the essential workers."  Check out the official music video below featuring people all across the country as they share Rivers Cuomo's letter to the heroes.

The band also said on their YouTube channel that they are working to get us all the new Weezer we "can handle" and they said they have some surprises that they'll be revealing later this week as well.

Here are the full lyrics to "Hero" from Weezer's YouTube Channel:

When I was a kid I thought I'd save the world

Running 'round and chasing all the criminals

Swinging on a web, flying in the sky

Shooting lasers from my eyes

But now I know it never was my destiny

It's not my place in life, not who I'm meant to be

And I don't need the glory, I don't need the fame

And I don't wanna wear this cape

 

‘Cause on the inside

I know it won't last

On the inside

I'm an outcast

 

Everybody needs a hero but I'm not everybody else

I walk alone

Yeah, I walk alone yeah, I walk alohone, eyeah

You know I tried to be a hero but I was lying to myself

I walk alone

Yeah, I walk alone yeah, I walk alohone, eyeah

 

They build you up and then they're gonna tear you down They love you then they hate you if you wear a crown

It’s not that I don’t love to solve a mystery

But life is hard enough with one identity

If silence is the voice of a new generation

Then I could live up to all of your expectations

I'd hammer down hard like I'm Iron Fist

Then disappear like I don't exist

And on the inside

I know it won't last

On the inside

I'm an outcast
