If you’ve ever wondered what it was like to be alone in Brian Wilson’s “My Room” with his keyboard, that opportunity is coming. “My My Piano” will be released on November 19, a newly recorded album to show that the Beach Boys’ master is rethinking his classic content on his solo piano rendition, sun vocals or any other music.
A teaser track from the album, his new version of the Beach Boys classic, “God Only Knows,” is being released today.
The track list of the Deca release, described as “a deep comfortable collection … suitable for sunset and golden days”, includes 15 selections. Diehard fans will find that there are more songs than this, as one of the tracks is “Sketches from Laughter”, a mix of four songs – “Our Prayers,” “Heroes and Villains,” “Wonderful” and “Surf Up” – 1960s. From the legendary “Smile” project that began in the decade but ended only in the early 21st century, followed by a full-length version of “Surf’s Up” followed by that medal, which is considered one of his best compositions.

“We had an authentic piano in our living room and I played it every day since I was 12 years old. I never got any lessons, I was completely self-taught,” Wilson said in a statement. It has played such an important role. It has bought me comfort, joy and security. It has stimulated my creativity as well as my competitive nature. I play it when I feel happy or sad. I love to play for people and when no one is listening. Love to play alone.In fact, the piano and music I created probably saved my life.
