    As previously reported, The Beach Boys’ 50th anniversary reunion will include a new studio album, the first to feature all surviving band members since 1995’s Stars and Stripes Vol. 1. Now, a new promo video confirms a June 5th release for the yet-to-be-titled LP, and offers a brief preview of the lead single,”That’s Why God Made the Radio”. Check it out below.

    Speaking with Billboard.com, Bruce Johnston said the album is “all brand new,” adding “There’s a lot of what you’d hope to hear from Brian (Wilson) on there. It’s not a quilt or a pot luck dinner; it’s not like, ‘OK, everybody show up with your songs.’ It’s not one of those kind of albums. There’s a lot of Brian in there, and Mike (Love). It’s just nice to know there is a Mike Love and a Brian Wilson still around to write together.”
