Weezer has delayed the special edition reissue of its self-titled 1994 debut album, according to the band’s official web site. A DVD of the band’s history has also been pushed back. Both items were originally due out by the end of this year, but will now probably surface in 2004, due to what a posting on the site called “overall schedule planning at the record label.”
The new edition of Weezer is expected to emerge as a double-disc set, featuring an elaborate booklet, lyrics, liner notes, B-sides, rarities, and some previously unheard material.
The DVD, titled Video Capture Device, will run over three hours and include band commentaries, among other yet-to-be-announced features.
Weezer is currently writing songs for its fifth album, which will be produced by Rick Rubin.
