Weezer have just released their first single, 'Memories,' from the new album 'Hurley.' After 16 years with Geffen Records, frontman Rivers Cuomo and the rest of the band have decided to go indie and release their eighth studio album on Epitaph Records. The new album hits stores Sept. 14. However, if Weezer fans pre-order 'Hurley' on iTunes, they'll be able to download 'Memories' right away.

According to Spinner, the news of Weezer signing to Epitaph broke last Wednesday, when label/co-founder Brett Gurewitz announced the signing on Twitter. Just because Weezer has gone indie doesn't mean they've altered their sound. In fact, the awesomely catchy sing-a-long chorus in 'Memories' makes us feel like this could be Weezer's biggest hit in years: "Memories make me want to go back there, back there / Memories, how can we make it back there, back there / I want to be there again." Listen to 'Memories' on AOL Radio's New Alternative First station.

The Doobie Brothers, 'Nobody' -- New Song

Doobie Brothers Nobody'Nobody' is the debut single from the Doobie Brothers' first new studio album in a decade. The album, 'World Gone Crazy,' will be in stores Sept. 28. This newly re-recorded song was originally released on the Doobie Brothers' first self-titled studio album in 1971.

Why re-record the song 40 years later? "Well, Ted Templeman [who produced the Doobie Brothers, Van Morrison and Van Halen] asked us to do it over because it never got recorded properly. This time it was!" band co-founder Tom Johnston tells AOL Radio. "And ...[as you can hear]... received a different treatment. It's a reminder to people that the original band is still alive and well!"

'Nobody' is the only song on the album that is not brand new; we'll just have to impatiently wait closer to the end of summer to hear the new material. Until then, tune into AOL Radio's Adult Rock station to hear the new song. Plus catch the Doobie Brothers on tour all summer long.
