Scott & Rivers (スコット と リバース, Sukotto to ribāsu) is the eponymous debut album by Scott & Rivers. It was released in Japan on March 20, 2013 in both a standard CD format, as well as a deluxe edition which includes a bonus DVD.


Rivers Cuomo first mentioned his intent to release a Japanese-language solo album in 2009, when he uploaded in-progress demos to the website Indaba Music, including a then-unnamed track co-written with the songwriter Shusui (which later became the song "Homely Girl"). This project, tentatively titled The Kumamoto Kid, was named for the city Kumamoto, where Cuomo's wife Kyoko was born. Some time later, Cuomo was joined by musician Scott Murphy. According to Cuomo, "Somebody at Weezer's record company introduced us after I told them that I was looking for a Japanese speaking gaijin collaborator."
