Weezer Plays Acoustic Four-Song Set For 'Tiny Desk': Watch

Weezer has spent the last month on tour with Pixies, and during their cross-country trek the alt-rock legends took a little pit stop to NPR's offices and played a stripped down, four-song set for the "Tiny Desk" series.

They began the intimate performance with a rare song, "Longtime Sunshine." The track was written in 1994 that's only appeared on frontman Rivers Cuomo's home recordings and the deluxe edition of Pinkerton. They then played an acoustic version of The Black Album's electro-pop single "Living in LA. Next came another deep cut, this time in the form of "Across The Sea," a song off Pinkerton that was inspired by a fan letter from a young woman in Japan, and the band rounded out the set with another new tune, "High As a Kite."

Watch the full performance below.

Weezer and Pixies have a handful of shows left on their co-headlining tour. Check out their remaining tour dates below.
