Weezer performs "Feels Like Summer" on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Weezer's Rivers Cuomo went method on Tuesday night (March 21), donning a sun costume to perform the band's new single "Feels Like Summer" on Jimmy Kimmel Live! He did not look uncomfortable at all in the shiny yellow starburst suit, strumming his beloved lime green guitar while rocking out the song's joyful falsetto chorus. 

The breezy song is a first taste of the veteran alt-rock band's upcoming 11th as-yet-untitled album, which is due out sometime this, yes, summer. “I'm holding on and I don't want to let you go/ Yeah it feels like summer/ Yeah it feels like summer to me,” Cuomo sings on the track featuring the band's signature punchy-pop hooks and chunky beat.

The performance marked their first time playing Kimmel's show.

And just because, they also dipped into their old bag of tricks for a run through their 2001 single "Island in the Sun." Of course Cuomo kept the sun costume on for that one, too, because: duh.
