We're saddened to hear of Eddie Van Halen's untimely passing today. Given the news today, we want to dedicate our album Van Weezer to Eddie as a thank you for all the incredible music that soundtracked our youth and inspired the record. RIP EVH. pic.twitter.com/plb9WIuo64— weezer (@Weezer) October 6, 2020

Looks like Noel Gallagher from Oasis is doing some genre-crossing in an upcoming guest shot. A while back, British “grime” rapper Dizzee Rascal mentioned that he was working with Noel in an interview and Noel has pretty much confirmed it, saying he recorded “with somebody who is in the grime world” and that it’s “coming out soon.”
