'No Pier Pressure' is Brian Wilson's eleventh solo venture and follows his 2012 50th anniversary reunion album with The Beach Boys' entitled 'That's Why God Made the Radio', a record which reached number 3 in the US charts and became their highest charting album since 1965's 'Summer Days (And Summer Nights!!)'. The new album also marks his first collection of original material since 2008's 'That Lucky Old Sun'.

Wilson's latest project features a myriad of collaborators, including producer Joe Thomas who worked on the last Beach Boys album as well as the likes of ex bandmates Al Jardine, David Marks and Blondie Chaplin; country star Kacey Musgraves; Nate Ruess from New York pop band fun.; Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward of She & Him; Sebu Simonian from Capital Cities; and many others.

Recorded at Hollywood's Ocean Way Studios, Wilson originally considered 'No Pier Pressure' to be another project for The Beach Boys as a whole, but changed his mind in favour of a more modern twist with a selection of talented current artists. It comes with a newfound confidence in the contemporary music industry, which awarded him a Grammy award in 2012 for his compilation Beach Boys release 'The Smile Sessions'; the follow up to his 2004 collection 'Brian Wilson Presents... Smile' which he began recording four decades earlier.

'No Pier Pressure' will be released on April 7th 2015.
