Weezer's new self-titled Interscope/Geffen set -- dubbed "The Green Album" -- is barely a week old, but the group has already begun recording brand new songs. According to Weezer's official Web site, the group recorded demos of 12 new tunes last Sunday during a 10-hour session at a Washington, D.C.-area studio. A handful of the tracks were recently debuted at a concert in St. Louis.

"The new songs have been flowing pretty good since 'The Green Album' was 'put to bed,' and everyone is already excited about doing the next album," the site reports. Among the working titles for the new cuts are "American Gigolo," "Not In Love," an instrumental called "Burnt Jamb," "Saturday Night," and "Listen Up."

"The Green Album" debuted at No. 4 on The Billboard 200, selling more than 215,000 units in the U.S., according to SoundScan. First single "Hash Pipe" is No. 2 on Billboard's Modern Rock Tracks chart this week. Weezer's ongoing "Hooptie Promotional Tour" rolls into Philadelphia on Monday (June 4) and will be followed by an appearance on "Late Night With Conan O'Brien" the following day in New York.
