Brian Wilson hasn’t gone surfing for a stretch. He’s in lockdown, like the rest of us. But the Beach Boys legend did Zoom in to A Tonight Show on Thursday night (June 4) for a performance of two songs.

Sitting at a grand piano, he told the camera: “Hi, this is Brian Wilson everyone. I just want you guys to know that we’re all in this together.”

The Rock And Roll Hall of Famer then launched into “Love and Mercy,” the opening track from his 1988 self-titled debut solo album.

Wilson also treated us to an iso-rendition of Beach Boys' Pet Sounds classic "God Only Knows."

The veteran singer and songwriter is warming up for the June 19 release of the 25th anniversary of his ode to California, Orange Crate Art, a collaborative album with uber-producer Van Dyke Parks. Orange Crate Art will also be issued on vinyl for the very first time.
