The Beach BoysMike Love, speaking in the new issue of Uncut, has revealed he is keen to write more songs with his cousin Brian Wilson.

Love is currently touring with Bruce Johnston as The Beach Boys, using a different band to the one that backed Love, Johnston, Wilson, Al Jardine and David Marks on last year’s worldwide 50th anniversary tour.

Asked whether a live or studio reunion with the surviving original members could happen again, Love says: “I don’t know. I know they’ve announced Brian is working on a solo album. He may have two or three projects he’s working on, so he’s pretty busy.

“As far as getting together again, it remains to be seen. I would like to write songs with my cousin Brian. I’d be up for doing that. I’ll leave it there.”

The reunited Beach Boys released a new album, That’s Why God Made The Radio, in June 2012.

The new issue of Uncut, dated October 2013, is out now.
