Weezer’s ‘Africa’ Cover Will Be Vinyl
“The band covered the song after a dedicated Twitter account named @WeezerAfrica started an epic campaign to request that Weezer take on the Toto classic.
They trolled fans by initially releasing a cover of Toto’s ‘Roseanna’, which won the 1983 Grammy Award for Record of the Year. Thankfully, shortly after, they treated campaign backers to their version of ‘Africa’.
The cover will now be released on a limited edition 7″ record, via Urban Outfitters. Both Toto tracks will feature on the vinyl, with the A-side hosting ‘Africa’ and the B-side featuring ‘Rosanna.’ It’ll be released on August 31.”
