  • MIKE LOVE of THE BEACH BOYS Releases Brand New Double Album - Out Today!




    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE New York, NY (November 17, 2017) - Legendary Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee, Grammy® Winner, New York Times Best-Selling Author, co-founder and chief lyricist of The Beach Boys, Mike Love, has released a special double album. Entitled Unleash the Love, the album features 13 brand new songs and 12 re-recordings of Beach Boys classics. The album is produced by Grammy®-winning producer, Michael Lloyd, and available today on digital, double CD, and 2LP formats.

    For more than fifty years, Mike Love has been the lead singer and front man of The Beach Boys taking the sounds of America’s band to every corner of the globe— playing for crowds of up to 750,000 fans. Mike has co-authored more than a dozen hit singles, cementing The Beach Boys as one of the only artists to have produced twelve Top 10 Singles within 5 years. With iconic and timeless tracks like “Good Vibrations,” “Fun, Fun, Fun,” “I Get Around,” and “Surfin’ Safari,” The Beach Boys have created some of the most performed songs in pop music history.

    Unleash The Love is a testament and continuation of Mike Love’s remarkable career. The new tracks range from rock, gospel, R&B and pop and celebrate Love’s connection to the teachings of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and his journey to find personal love and peace. Love’s history with Transcendental meditation anchors a number of songs including “Ram Raj” a song celebrating the divine; “Pisces Brothers,” a tribute to the late George Harrison and the spiritual awakening the two artists shared on their respective birthdays and “Cool Head, Warm Heart” a breezy pop song, which borrows its title from a famous saying by Maharishi Mahesh. The album also includes a prayer for the planet “Only One Earth.” As with all of the new tracks, a sense of urgency is infused in every song: to change what you can, to transcend, connect to the planet and the people around you and give into the power of love.

    “I’ve been working on these new songs on and off for many years now and I’m excited to share them with fans,” says Mike Love. “As a writer, I kept gravitating to this idea of love, in all forms. Romantic love, unrequited love, lasting love, spiritual love, love for the planet, and what the absence of love can do to us as a people. This album is my way of communicating what the world needs now is love sweet love. And the hope is if we all can unleash whatever love inside of us, we can collectively make this world better.”

    In addition to the collection of Mike Love original songs, the special double album features new versions of classic hits recorded by members of The Beach Boys touring band such as “California Girls,” “Help Me Rhonda,” “Good Vibrations,” “Do It Again” featuring Mark McGrath and John Stamos, as well as “Darlin’” featuring AJR.
