Pet Sounds and The Beach Boys’ Christmas Album are available now

Two of The Beach Boys’ most iconic albums – Pet Sounds and The Beach Boys’ Christmas Album – have been pressed on swoon-worthy color vinyl for the holidays.

The group’s 1964 Christmas Album, featuring such timeless Christmas classics as “Little Saint Nick,” “The Man With All The Toys,” “Merry Christmas, Baby,” and their joyous, harmony-laden takes on yuletide favorites like “Frosty The Snowman” and “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town,” is available in the colors of Christmas. Fans can purchase the album on limited edition translucent ruby red vinyl exclusively from the Beach Boys’ official store, uDiscover Music and Sound Of Vinyl or on limited edition green vinyl at participating indie record stores as part of Record Store Day Black Friday, taking place this Friday, November 24th.

The Beach Boys have also just released a new holiday collection of merch and apparel including festive sweater, hoodies, shirts, beanies, hats, socks, tree ornaments and more, allowing fans to express their love of the holidays and The Beach Boys.

Pet Sounds, the Beach Boys’ magnum opus, is now available on limited edition yellow/green splatter vinyl which matches the album cover’s unmistakable color scheme. The pressing, which is numbered and features a deluxe tip-on jacket is exclusive to the band’s website, uDiscover Music and Sound Of Vinyl.

This special pressing follows the release of Pet Sounds in Dolby Atmos earlier this year. Fans can now experience the revered album like never before with the new immersive and revelatory mix by renowned, multiple Grammy-winning producer Giles Martin. In order to create this unique listening experience, Martin, who was personally asked by The Beach Boys to mix Pet Sounds, was given access to the original analog tapes and built the enveloping and enthralling new mix from the ground up using Brian Wilson’s original 1966 mono mix and Mark Linett’s subsequent 1997 stereo mix as guides. The new Dolby Atmos mix retains the feel of the classic album but offers a fresh perspective, putting listeners in the center of the music while revealing details with unparalleled clarity and depth.

Widely regarded as one of the greatest albums of all time, Pet Sounds changed the notion of what an album could be when released in May 1966, forever altering the course of popular music. Across 13 exquisite tracks, Pet Sounds pushed the boundaries of sonic experimentation, introducing a rich tapestry of complex, orchestral arrangements, unconventional instrumentation like Theremin and Coca-Cola bottles for percussion, flawless, trademark harmonies by Al Jardine, Carl Wilson, Dennis Wilson, Mike Love and new addition Bruce Johnston, and deep, introspective lyrics that went beyond anything the group had ever sung about.
