'That Lucky Old Sun' sees former Beach Boy back at Capitol
Brian Wilson has revealed the track listing for his brand new album ‘That Lucky Old Sun’, set to be released September 2.
The record will come out on CD, DVD and digitally, as well as on a limited edition vinyl which will came out on August 19.
‘That Lucky Old Sun’ sees the former Beach Boy return to Capitol records, the label that was originally home to his band back in the 1960s.
The Beach Boys ‘Surfin’ Safari/409’ was released via the imprint in 1962 and Wilson says he is thrilled to be back at the label.
“I’m thrilled to be back home with Capitol, and I’m looking forward to sharing ’That Lucky Old Sun’ with everyone. This music is really special to me.”
Inspired by the 1949 song ‘That Lucky Old Sun’, Wilson debuted the album in London in September 2007 in a series of six sold-out shows at the Royal Albert Hall.
Produced by Wilson himself, the album was recorded at Capitol Studios in Hollywood, where he first recorded in 1962.
