Brian Wilson At My Piano

Brian Wilson has recorded an album of Beach Boys hits on solo piano, set for release as “At My Piano“. The 15-track offering of instrumental piano translations of the California surf group is set for release on November 19th via Decca Records. Along with the announcement, Wilson has shared a reworked “God Only Knows”.

Featured on At My Piano are Brian Wilson-penned Beach Boys classics including “In My Room,” “California Girls,” “Wouldn’t It Be Nice,” “You Still Believe In Me,” “I Just Wasn’t Made For These Times,” “Surf’s Up,” “Friends, “Till I Die,” “Good Vibrations,” plus a “Smile” medley, and more. Even without the timeless lyrics, Wilson’s heart and soul—aka the heart and soul of the Beach Boys—pour through the instrumental telling of “God Only Knows”.

“We had an upright piano in our living room and from the time I was 12 years old I played it each and every day. I never had a lesson, I was completely self-taught,” Brian said in a statement. “I can’t express how much the piano has played such an important part in my life. It has bought me comfort, joy, and security. It has fuelled my creativity as well as my competitive nature. I play it when I’m happy or feeling sad. I love playing for people and I love playing alone when no one is listening. Honestly, the piano and the music I create on it has probably saved my life.”

Listen to the solo piano reimagining of “God Only Knows”, set to appear on the new Brian Wilson album “At My Piano”.
