The Beach Boys have unveiled a clip of “That’s Why God Made the Radio”, the first single from their new album, which is due in June.

The band are soon to embark on a world tour to celebrate their 50th anniversary this summer with founding members Brian Wilson, Mike Love and Al Jardine all involved. Yesterday, Brian Johnston announced that the band would also release an album to coincide with the tour on June 5.

“It’s a sentimental thing for me,” says Brian Wilson in the clip which you can watch below. “We’ve been together 50 years – that’s a long time.” Mike Love adds: “Conceptually, the album is not going to be anything outlandish or silly, like ‘Smiley Smile’. It will be like the Beach Boys circa ’65. I’m trying to write lyrics that fit the music without making it sound like you’re writing from a hospice.”
