A new Weezer single is coming Thursday, and its from a movie that has a Rivers Cuomo cameo.
The track, "California Snow," is from Spell, which has its world premiere on September 23rd at the L.A. Film Festival. It focuses on an illustrator, played by Barak Hardley, who runs out of medication while "wandering the isolated Icelandic countryside" and is "unsure if his compulsions are related to his disorder or if he's being forced to unlock ancient secrets." Cuomo plays the man's therapist, but can only be heard over the phone. The film's producers even set up a fake website for Cuomo's character, Rivers Haskell.
Spell has another rock connection -- Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boy did the score.
