Beach Boys: il disco arriva il 31 ottobre

beach_boys

A quasi quindici anni di distanza dalla pubblicazione del loro ultimo album studio, Stars And Stripes Vol.1, i Beach Boys stanno per tornare sul mercato discografico con una lunga serie di novità e pronti a riemergere da questa lunga parentesi di impasse produttiva. Il prossimo 31 ottobre arriveranno in tutti i negozi di musica le Smile Sessions, ovvero una versione del tutto nuova dell’album andato perso della band, i cui componenti si sono finalmente riuniti malgrado la formazione nel corso degli anni abbia subito la mancanza di Dennis e Carl Wilson, rispettivamente scomparsi nel 1983 e nel 1998.

Il disco dei Beach Boys sarà composto da un doppio cd, un doppio vinile e diverse edizioni in cofanetto, tutte con l’obiettivo di riproporre al pubblico mondiale i brani appartenenti alla versione originale dell’album.

A fine articolo segnaliamo la tracklist completa delle Smile Sessions, rinviando l’appuntamento al prossimo 31 ottobre con il grande ritorno dei Beach Boys!
