The Beach Boys cheer their anniversary – and the radio – with their new ultra-harmonic, radio-praising single.
Mike Love, Al Jardine, Brian Wilson and David Marks launch the first new single ‘That’s Why God Made The Radio’ from their forthcoming album in a video teaser.
Mike Love says, “It’s kind of an accolade to the radio and what it has meant to so many millions and millions of people.”
Brian Wilson says that radio was his education, where he discovered Chuck Berry, Rosemary Clooney, The Four Freshmen, and Phil Spector.
Al Jardine says of the single, “If you like harmony, man, this is going to knock your socks off!”
Judging from what you can hear in the background, he ain’t kidding. ‘That’s Why God Made The Radio’ will be released this Friday 27 April, with the new album due out in June.
