The lost Beach Boys masterpiece will finally see the light of day...
BRIAN WILSON is to release an all new recording of the lost Beach Boys album ’SMILE’.
Wilson and lyricist Van Dyke Parks, who collaborated on the original ’Smile’ sessions in 1966-67, listened together to the 37-year-old tapes in November last year.
Now, an all-new studio recording of ’Smile’ will be made available by Nonesuch Records on September 27. The album will be produced by Wilson and will feature the ten-member band that has supported him on tour over the past five years, and will also feature The Stockholm Strings and Horns.
The ex-Beach Boys is currently working on the new version of the record at the Sunset Sound studio in LA.
