Weezer have officially announced Ok Human, their next album, which was written amid the coronavirus pandemic and will arrive on Jan. 29. A music video for the opening track, "All My Favorite Songs," has just been released, but don't worry, the Van Weezer album that had been previously announced is still set for a spring release.

The album's title is a cheeky nod to Radiohead's Ok Computer, but the homage is in name only as the material does not mirror the English group's sound in the slightest. For OK Human, frontman Rivers Cuomo spent much of his summer crafting songs on the piano, using the Beach Boys classic Pet Shop Sounds as his inspiration.

He and the rest of the band worked with a 38-piece orchestra on the record, which will be Weezer's 14th, and only used analog technology this time around.

"OK Human was made at a time when humans-playing-instruments was a thing of the past," said the band. "All we could do is look back on ancient times when humans really mattered and when the dark tech-takeover fantasy didn’t exist. We used our instruments to connect to the 1960s and 1970s and, with the orchestra, back to the 18th and 19th centuries. We had no click track or loops or hi-tech sounds. Not even an electric guitar."

Regarding the song, Weezer entertain a bit of a juxtaposed mood, decrying, "All my favorite songs are slow and sad." There's no urgency in the tempo, but it does have a lightly bubbly feeling amid the swirling orchestrations and dominant violin melodies.

Weezer, "All My Favorite Songs" Lyrics

All my favorite songs are slow and sad
All my favorite people make me mad
Everything that feels so good is bad, bad, bad (Hey, hey)
All my favorite songs are slow and sad
I don't know what's wrong with me (Ooh, ooh, ooh)
I don't know what's wrong with me (Ooh, ooh, ooh)

I love parties, but I don't go
Then I feel bad when I stay home
'Cause I need a friend when I take a walk
I like spacin' out when somebody talks
I wanna be rich, but I feel guilty
I fall in love with everyone who hates me

All my favorite songs are slow and sad
All my favorite people make me mad (So mad)
Everything that feels so good is bad, bad, bad (Hey, hey)
All my favorite songs are slow and sad (All my favorite songs)
I don't know what's wrong with me (Ooh, ooh, ooh)
I don't know what's wrong with me (Ooh, ooh, ooh)

Dreamy morning, walkin' alone by myself
Thinkin' about life, and tryin' to find my way through hell
Sometimes I wish I was on an island (Ah, ah, ah)
But then I'd miss the sound of sirens (Ah, ah, ah)

All my favorite songs are slow and sad
All my favorite people make me mad (So mad)
Everything that feels so good is bad, bad, bad
All my favorite songs are slow and sad
I don't know what's wrong with me
I don't know what's wrong with me

I don't know what's wrong with me (Ooh, ooh, ooh)
Woah, oh, oh, oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh
Woah, oh, oh, oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh
