As we pointed out earlier this week, a preview of the Beach Boys’ new single That’s Why God Made the Radio was made available. Today, more information about the forthcoming album made its way online, including an official lyric video for the single. Watch/hear it below.
The song’s affinity for the radio is a reflection upon the group’s members, as Brian Wilson was quoted as saying:
Radio was my whole education…Chuck Berry, Rosemary Clooney, the Four Freshmen, Phil Spector, Little Richard… To hear ‘That’s Why God Made The Radio’ on the radio would be a thrill beyond belief, it really would. It would be a thrill beyond belief.
According to a press release issued earlier today, some of the other songs on the album (which will be released on June 5) are named Think About The Days, Isn’t It Time, Spring Vacation, Private Life Of Bill And Sue, Shelter, Daybreak Over The Ocean, Beaches In Mind, Strange World, My Life Suite, and Summer’s Gone.
