Brian Wilson reveals all star collaborators for next album

Jeff Beck, Kacey Musgraves & Zooey Deschanel are among the guests

Last June, Brian Wilson revealed he was working with a variety of collaborators including Jeff Beck, Don Was, Jim Keltner, and members of Beck’s touring rhythm section for his upcoming 11th studio album.

In the June 19th issue of Rolling Stone, the magazine reveals even more star power will be included on the disc. The article states, “Songs in contention for Brian Wilson’s next album range from the sassy ‘Sharing a New Day’ with Kacey Musgraves to the space-age bossa nova ‘On the Island’ with Zooey Deschanel to the haunting ‘Last Song’ with Lana Del Rey.”

It continues, “Another possible highlight: ‘Special Love,’ potentially featuring Frank Ocean.”

“This project blows my mind,” Wilson says. “I had no idea we could pull this off!”

The still untitled album will be more infused with rock and roll, unlike his past two albums, 201o’s Brian Wilson Reimagines Gershwin and 2011’s In the Key of Disney, which is why Beck has joined Wilson in the studio. It was recorded at Ocean Way Studios in Hollywood.

No release date has been announced as of press time.
