Here’s Something To Smile About…

Forty-four years ago, The Beach Boys were hard at work on 'The Smile Sessions,' a hugely anticipated record that was going to follow their legendary album 'Pet Sounds.'

But the sessions slowly became overshadowed by creative differences, arguments and Brian Wilson's struggles with mental health. And so, the project was scrapped... until now.

The sessions have been resurrected, and the album is set to be released on LP, CD and iTunes.

No word yet on when the album will drop, but odds are, it'll be worth the wait.
