Hear “God Only Knows” From Brian Wilson’s New Album Of Solo Piano Beach Boys Hits

We generally don’t think of Brian Wilson as the kind of artist who would record a stripped-down solo-piano album. At his peak, the former Beach Boys sonic mastermind was famous for complex orchestrations and layered vocal harmonies so ambitious that the rest of Wilson’s band rebelled against him. But later this fall, Wilson will release At My Piano, a new album of Beach Boys classics that consists entirely of Wilson playing piano.

If you’ve ever enjoyed holding a record jacket in your hands while listening to an album from a prominent singer-songwriter from the ’70s or ’80s, and examined the credits while it plays, chances are that you’ll discover the name Waddy Wachtel.

His name often gets mentioned along with the session aces Danny Kortchmar, Leland Sklar and Russ Kunkel, and for good reason: they’ve worked together for over five decades.
