On June 29, Brian Wilson and Van Dyke Parks will reissue their 1995 album, Orange Crate Art, via Omnivore Recordings, marking the LP’s 25th anniversary.

The collaborative record came about as Brian Wilson and Van Dyke Parks reconnected decades after their work on the (then-unreleased) Beach Boys project SMiLE, focusing on putting together a collection of songs paying tribute to the state of California.

The reissue was detailed on Thursday, with Rolling Stone premiering the duo’s never-before-heard cover of “What A Wonderful World”:

The reissue will include the album’s first-ever vinyl release. Via a news release:

By 1994, the roles had been reversed and it was Van Dyke who coaxed Brian into the studio to be the singer of nearly a dozen new songs he had written as a tribute to his home away from home. Parks writes in the liner notes, “Though my roots are somewhere else, far away, my limbs are here in Southern California . . . it’s here . . . that I have struggled desperately for a sense of place . . . Orange Crate Art is a continuum of that which stood, freeze-frame, at the release of SMiLE.”
