Weezer just released the cover for their new album, the Hurley LP and it couldn’t be any better!
The new album cover features “Hurley” from the popular TV show Lost. Hurley, played by Jorge Garcia, has a big smile in the photo and it’s rather infectious.
Rivers Cuomo explained to New York Magazine why he chose the close-up photo of Hurley:
“I just loved this photo of Jorge Garcia — it just had this amazing vibe. 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.”
The LP drops on September 14th. Long live Hurley! Now we know what happened to him after Lost, he became immortalized on an album cover for Geek rocks hottest band.
