Weezer plans "Pinkerton" reissue

Posted April 28, 2010, 2:14 p.m. in Records by Jon E.

Weezer has begun taking pre-orders for the long-promised reissue of their most acclaimed full length, 1996's Pinkerton. According to reports, little is known other than the fact that the band is planning to go the deluxe/expanded route like their previous album, 2004's Weezer [Deluxe Edition]. The band is also assembling an "Odds and Ends" collection for 2010 as well. Bassist Scott Shriner notes:

It's a ton of B-sides from a big period of time. Rivers (Cuomo) has been mostly in charge of picking which songs are gonna be on that...I played on a lot of the songs. Some of the songs were around before I was in the band (since 2001). There's so many cool things that we've recorded for records that never made the (albums), I think they had to get out there. Finally it's going to happen.

The band will also be contributing a new song to the soundtrack to the Shrek Forever After film which is the second contribution from the group to the computer animated series. Check out the full report via Billboard.
