It has now been announced that the documentary, Beach Boys: Making Pet Sounds, will air on the Showtime network in the US in the spring. Featuring interviews with band leader Brian Wilson and Beach Boys members Mike Love, Al Jardine, Bruce Johnston, and David Marks, the documentary will also delve into the archives to screen footage from the studio as well as outtakes from recordings.
While a UK broadcast host or date has yet to be announced, the ‘Pet Sounds’ documentary is set to premiere on Showtime in the US in April.
Wilson will continue to celebrate ‘Pet Sounds’ – which celebrated its 50th anniversary last year with a deluxe reissue – on tour in 2017, bringing the classic album to the UK for a string of live dates.
The Beach Boy had already been announced for the festivals Kendal Calling and Camp Bestival, and was this week confirmed for shows in London and Sheffield in August.
