Details are slowly emerging about the new Beach Boys album.  Brian Wilson and Mike Love did a joint interview with the New York Times in which they revealed some very interesting tidbits.   Brian Wilson said that the album would flow continuously from beginning to end: “On the album, one song flows into another and that flows into another like that, until its over, until there’s no more album.”

Mike love singled out one song titled ‘That’s Why God Made The Radio’ saying, “It really showcases the harmonies incredibly, and philosophically I think it’s a wonderful thing. It’s a new song that sounds as good as any song we ever did.”

Love also said that Al Jardine had been incredible in the studio: “Al sounds phenomenal on a couple of things. His voice cuts through in a certain range so beautifully.”

There is still no official release date for the album, and some songs are still works in progress.  The 50th anniversary tour however, is all set.  The second show will be in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex at the Verizon Theater in Grand Prairie.   Tickets for that April 26th show go on sale this Saturday, February 25th via Ticketmaster.  (via
