Brian Wilson will be returning to Capitol Records, the original label home of The Beach Boys, to release his brand new solo album, No Pier Pressure, on 7th April. Although he did initially have his old band in mind for the album, thoughts quickly turned to finding "the right voices" (said the press release) for the music.

As such, he's employed Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward of She & Him (who covered 'God Only Knows' at the end of last year); Nate Ruess (from fun.); former Beach Boys bandmates Al Jardine, David Marks, and Blondie Chaplin; Kacey Musgraves; Sebu Simonian (Capital Cities). Session players include Kenny Aronoff, Jim Keltner, Dean Parks and Don Was.

Standard (13 tracks) and deluxe (16 tracks) versions of the album will be available digitally and on CD, whilst there will also be a 2LP vinyl available, too.
