‘Rolling Stone’ Will Reveal New Collaborations for Brian Wilson Solo Album
Brian Wilson has regularly released new albums, of classics, as a solo act, and with the Beach Boys’ reunited lineup, since 2010. The latest appears to be a solo project of original material, with Wilson highlighting a Rolling Stone report that will come out on June 19.
The report on Wilson’s website reveals that his next album will feature collaborations with Kacey Musgraves, Zooey Deschanel, Lana Del Rey, and Frank Ocean. About the album, which remains untitled for the moment, Wilson says in the report: "This project blows my mind. I had no idea we could pull this off!"
The first few years of the 2010s saw Wilson partnering with Disney. Through that, he released two albums: One of classic Gershwin songs called Brian Wilson Reimagines Gershwin and another of Disney songs, called In The Key of Disney. The former reached No. 1 on the Billboard Jazz charts.
By 2011, Wilson put out a Buddy Holly tribute, called Listen to Me: Buddy Holly. The next year brought a Beach Boys’ reunion, first with unreleased outtakes from The Smile Sessions and then a new album. That’s Why God Made The Radio debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200. However, since the brief reunion, just Mike Love and Bruce Johnson continue to tour as the Beach Boys.
Wilson returned to his solo career last year, announcing three albums, including one with a pop sound.
