After sifting through many ideas, Weezer has finally settled on their eighth album cover. The album cover features the remarkably jolly face of Jorge Garcia, who played Hurley on the ABC series 'Lost.'
Frontman Rivers Cuomo spoke to Spinner and stated that the title 'Hurley' was easy to decide upon once the band voted in favor of using Jorge's jovial mug as the cover art. "I just loved this photo of Jorge Garcia -- it just had this amazing vibe," Cuomo said. "We didn't want to do a fourth self-titled record and we knew people would refer to it as 'the Hurley record' even if we left it without that title, so we just called it 'Hurley.'"
Weezer are now inviting fans to create their own photo masterpieces based upon the original photo used for the 'Hurley' album cover. Head over to Spinner to check out the original photo and to read more about 'Hurley.'
