A number of tracks from the highly anticipated new Weezer album have appeared online over a month before it’s due to be released.

‘Troublemaker’, ‘The Greatest Man That Ever Lived (Variations on a Shaker Hymn)’ and ‘Pork and Beans’, are amongst eight songs which are circulating across the internet.

The band’s new album, entitled ‘Weezer’, isn’t scheduled for release until June 30th in the United Kingdom.
