Beach Boys - Beach Boys Working On First New Album In 16 Years

The Beach Boys have announced they are working on their first album of new material since 1996.
The legendary group reunited after Brian Wilson and Mike Love teamed up with fellow original Al Jardine as part of a Beach Boys tribute at the Grammys earlier this year (12).
They are heading out on an extensive world tour in the summer (12) to celebrate their 50th anniversary, and member Bruce Johnston has revealed the group has been in the studio to come up with brand new tracks to play on the road.
He tells Billboard.com, "It's all brand new. There's a lot of what you'd hope to hear from Brian (Wilson) on there. It's not a quilt or a pot luck dinner, it's not like, 'OK, everybody show up with your songs.' It's not one of those kind of albums.
"There's a lot of Brian in there, and Mike (Love). It's just nice to know there is a Mike Love and a Brian Wilson still around to write together."
The band's last studio album was 1996's Stars and Stripes Vol. 1.
