SMiLE Arrives October 31, 2011

We mentioned earlier this year that Beach Boys Al Jardine, Mike Love and Brian Wilson would be officially releasing SMiLE, produced from their shelved recording sessions of 1966-67, and we can now tell you it will be available to order on October 31, 2011 (November 1 USA). 

These 'lost' and previously unreleased recordings of their SMiLE studio work are to be released as a closest-approximation album of what would have been their follow-up to Pet Sounds from May 1966. The tracks are created directly from the original master tapes and will be available in a variety of formats, including a $6000 version that includes a custom-made SMiLE surfboard.

'Surf's up, aboard a tidal wave, come about hard and join the young and often spring you gave. I heard the word, wonderful thing... a children's song...' - from 'Surf's Up'  by Brian Wilson and Van Dyke Parks

For the full run-down of all the tracks included please visit Brian Wilson's website,
