We're feeling some good vibrations!
The Beach Boys are about to release some never-before-heard tracks.
A new album, titled The Smile Sessions, will be issued by Capitol Records and will be available later this year.
Beach Boy Brian Wilson expressed his excitement about the upcoming album:
"I'm thrilled that the Beach Boys' original studio sessions for Smile will be released for the first time, after all these years.
I'm looking forward to this collection of the original recordings and having fans hear the beautiful angelic voices of the boys in a proper studio release."
Sweet! Can't wait to hear what we've been missing out on all these years!

Honestly, it was kind of ridiculous to think that they would. The guys know this business well enough to know what's up.
Earlier today, rumors were flying that The Beach Boys were suing Katy Perry over her widely successful song California Gurls.
Obviously, you can see why there was some hullaballoo, but Mike Love of the Boys released a statement to clear up the whole mess. Mike explains:
"The Beach Boys are definitely not suing Katy Perry. In fact, we are flattered that her fantastically successful song is bringing to mind to millions of people our 1965 recording of the Beach Boys' 'California Girls.' We think her song is great and wish her all the success in the world."
See that? The man said flattered! No harm, no foul!!
Someone should do a mashup of their two songs in celebration of them NOT hating each other!!!!
