Weezer was supposed to release their new album Van Weezer this May but they decided to push it back to a later date because of COVID-19.

Instead, they dropped a single called "Hero" off the said album to pay tribute to the hardworking frontliners fighting the devastating pandemic.

The highly uplifiting song has the magical touch of Weezer's signature sound. “Everybody needs a hero but I’m not everybody else I walk alone, yeah, I walk alone," frontman Rivers Cuomo sings.

As they introduced the official music video of "Hero" to the world, the band wrote, “This one is for the stay at home dreamers, the zoom graduators, the sourdough bakers, and the essential workers.”

On the video's last frame, you'll see a letter from Rivers expressing gratitude to essential workers on the frontlines of the COVID-19 crisis. “Your bravery and selflessness are awe-inspiring,” his thoughtful missive says.
