New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Acclaimed record producer Michael Beinhorn recently collaborated with veteran alt-rock band WEEZER on pre-production of the band's highly anticipated new album of original material, 'The Black Album,' set for release on March 1.

Beinhorn says, "I got involved with the Weezer project after 4 songs had already been recorded and mixed and continued with it until it was done. Rivers sent me demos of songs he was planning on recording and I gave him detailed feedback about structural and foundational elements such as composition, lyrics arrangement, etc. My involvement on the project was completely separate from the album production, which was often taking place simultaneously. As the album progressed, we had further discussions about song selection and later, post-production details like orchestration and mix down."

This recent collaboration with Weezer is yet another highlight of the Grammy-nominated music producer's illustrious career in which he has played a pivotal role in the making of many of the top records of the last four decades.

His credits include production work on watershed albums from the likes of Soundgarden, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Korn, Marilyn Manson, Hole, Soul Asylum, Ozzy Osbourne, Mew, Social Distortion, Violent Femmes, Herbie Hancock, The Bronx, The Golden Palominos and Black Label Society.

Beinhorn's recordings have achieved combined worldwide sales of more than 45 million albums, and he is one of only a handful of producers to have two separate recordings debut in Billboard's Top Ten in the same week, with Marilyn Manson's "Mechanical Animals" (#1) and Hole's "Celebrity Skin" (#9) which also earned him a 1998 Grammy nomination for Producer of the Year.

In recent years, Beinhorn has turned his attention to the concerns facing today's artists and producers attempting to maintain their creative ethics and focus on the recording process. He has been increasingly active in mentoring fellow artists and aspiring record producers.

Beinhorn recently launched his latest venture into pre-production services, which encompass areas like song-selection, song repair, song arrangement/orchestration, project overview (or how the songs that make up the prospective album function together as a complete body of work) and more.
