The Beach Boys 50th anniversary reunion continues with another brand new song emerging as a preview of the band’s first brand-new album in 20 years. Brian Wilson & Co. have released calming ballad “From There to Back Again” for online streaming.
The new LP That’s Why God Made The Radio arrives just five days from today (May 31), but the second taste of the album can be heard exclusively at Rolling Stone.
“From There to Back Again” recalls the songwriting and performance styles of the Beach Boys’ best early work from the ’60s. Their vocal harmonies sound a good as ever, and the music evokes a familiar warm feeling one tends to get when hearing classic Beach Boys tunes. The progressive nature of the song hearkens back to the band’s sonic experimentation on classics like Pet Sounds and SMiLE.
Listen to the song at Rolling Stone and let us know what you think in the comments. The Beach Boys bring their 50th anniversary tour (and brand new material) to the Bank of America Pavilion on June 26.
“From There to Back Again” is the second track released off That’s Why God Made The Radio, after the title track.
