Best Coast’s Bethany Cosentino talked to LA Weekly about her collaboration with Weezer’s frontman Rivers Cuomo. She says Cuomo approached her management about the possibility about writing a song with her and they did, it is titled ‘Go Away’ this is what she told LA Weekly:

LA WEEKLY: What’s going on with Weezer?

BETHANY COSENTINO: I co-wrote a song with Rivers. I don’t know exactly what it’s gonna be used for. I did co-write a song with him for Weezer, but I don’t know if it’s gonna be on their record or … It’s really something that he asked me to do — we were on our last tour and my manager Adam called me and said, “Rivers wants you to come into a studio when you get back to L.A. and write a song with him.” And I was like, “Oh, my god, OK — it’s Rivers from Weezer, which is obviously a band I grew up listening to and a band that’s influenced me.” Honestly, I went in, recorded a song with him in one day and it was one of the most … for something that I got so stressed out and anxious about, it ended up being so natural, and it happened, and the song is really great.

LA WEEKLY: What is it called?

BC: “Go Away.” It’s cool. We wrote it together and he recently sent me a version he’s been working on, and I’m really happy with it and to be able to hear it. It’s a duet, it’s him and I singing together, and to hear his voice and my voice on the same song makes my inner 13-year-old so excited (laughs).

I was hoping it would be a Best Coast song not a Weezer song. You can read the rest of the interview here.
