“It is NOT our third Christmas EP!”
SZNZ: Winter is the final part of American rock band Weezer's 2022 musical project known simply as SZNZ. The EP also acts as Weezer's third Christmas special. It will be released on December 21.
Live performance leak
After having their five night residency on Broadway cancelled, the band performed SZNZ: Winter to a crowd under their old alias "Sheep Fuckers" at a super secret show in which some people, despite being told not to, recorded audio of the show. This audio was released, or "leaked", onto the internet a full two months before the final part of SZNZ was set to be released.
Luckily, those that did record the show, did so with poor technology, making the leaked audio not sound as good as it would had the studio versions been the ones that leaked.
A Weezer Christmas
After the Weezer Christmas EP released in 2000, and the 2008 EP Christmas With Weezer, SZNZ: Winter completes the trilogy of Christmas music albums recorded by the '90s alt-rock band. Although, Rivers Cuomo continues to deny claims that SZNZ Part IV is a Christmas EP and that it does not contain any Christmas-themed songs at all. This has been debunked, however, considering that the fourth track on the EP is titled "I Want a Dog" and follows the story of a young boy asking Santa for a dog as his Christmas present. When Santa doesn't give the young lad a dog, the boy tracks Santa back to the North Pole and proceeds to murder Santa in his sleep. The song ends with the boy, now a man, laying awake in his prison cell at night and how he wouldn't be there had Santa just given him a dog for Christmas.
