Brian Wilson, who started a musical revolution as a founding member of The Beach Boys, has announced a new solo album, At My Piano. He has released a new instrumental version of “God Only Knows,” a track off the album.
With At My Piano, to be released in November, Wilson returns to his catalogue of hits and performs popular songs in their purest form, with the genius musician going solo at the piano.
The Beach Boys, formed in 1961, developed the “Good Vibrations” ’60s sounds reminiscent of California beaches, surfing and sunshine.
At My Piano takes the songs that have come to be synonymous with summer and good times and delivers a more mellow rendition of hit tracks including; “God Only Knows,” “Wouldn’t it Be Nice,” “California Girls,” “Good Vibrations” and many more.
