Weezer has a new album coming out later this year titled “Van Weezer”. Originally due out earlier, but was pushed back because of the pandemic. You can pre-order it here. Weezer originally played this version on The Jimmy Fallon Show, so you may be familiar with it. The band has dedicated this version to all the essential workers during the Coronavirus. Hero is done well in this ballad like form. I think the words resonate more with the listener. I think the most potent line in the song is;
“But life is hard enough with one identity”
The struggle of being a hero in one sentence. Damn that some good writing there. I really enjoyed this version. There is no video for it but just a stream of the song over the album cover. Check it out below.
