Weezer - Hurley

When I saw this album cover I almost not believed it. Jorge Garcia from Lost is a huge Weezer fan, he met Rivers Cuomo in TV show backstage in May of this year and asked to take a picture with him. This simply picture is the newest album cover that will be released in 14th September.

Rivers Cuomo said: "I was coming up with all kinds of stuff, but ultimately, we just went with some random word that doesn't really have anything to do with anything. I just loved this photo of Jorge Garcia -- it just had this amazing vibe," he continued. "We didn't want to do a fourth self-titled record and we knew people would refer to it as 'the Hurley record' even if left it without that title, so we just called it 'Hurley.' No words are on the cover because all we wanted was his amazing face."

Weezer don't like names on their albums. Some of them are known as "Green album", "Blue Album" and "Red Album" and now ... "Hurley".

I love funny cover arts ;)
