After taking some time to release a George Gershwin covers album, a Disney covers album and even remaster the long-bootlegged tapes of the Beach Boys‘ unreleased masterpiece SMiLE, Brian Wilson is releasing his first studio album of original material since 2008 this April.
Entitled No Pier Pressure (a pun the album art bluntly spells out), Wilson’s 11th solo album features an impressive roster of contemporary guests and returning collaborators (many of his Beach Boys buds are on this album).
Despite reports that Frank Ocean and Lana Del Rey would appear on Wilson’s next album, neither artist is credited on the tracklist. Rolling Stone reports Ocean’s contribution “did not make the cut,” even though the song Ocean sang on did make the album. Similarly, Lana Del Rey’s song with Wilson, “The Last Ship,” is on No Pier Pressure, but not her name.
