Music and Beach Boys legend Brian Wilson and Capitol Records are partnering with newspapers all across the US for an exclusive premiere of Brian Wilson's new album, That Lucky Old Sun.
From August 22 to September 1, more than 50 newspaper and TV station websites, including USA Today, will exclusively offer full streaming audio of Wilson's new album before its September 2 release.
Viewers to the websites will be able to listen to the full 38-minute album in sequence or skip ahead or back to individual tracks.
For the release of his new studio album, That Lucky Old Sun, Wilson has returned to Capitol Records, his original label home. The new album will be released on CD, limited edition CD/DVD, and digitally on September 2. The album was released today (August 19) as a limited edition vinyl LP.
Brian Wilson describes That Lucky Old Sun as an "interwoven series of 'rounds' with interspersed spoken word," and as an autobiographical travelogue of sorts. The new studio album is produced by Wilson and was created with his acclaimed band at Capitol Studios in Hollywood, where he first recorded in 1962.
Brian says, "This music is really special to me and I hope that everyone will enjoy it!"
Brian Wilson will tour with his band this fall, performing songs from That Lucky Old Sun and his classic hits. For more information, check out Brian Wilson's official website.
