Times are tough for Brian Wilson. His new album No Pier Pressure was rumored to have some pretty stellar guest spots from both Frank Ocean and Lana Del Rey, but when the album was announced they were both absent from the tracklist without a reason as to why. Now we have that reason, and it boils down to Wilson not listening to "today's music" and also not being a huge rap fan.

In an interview with Vulture, he said "Well, Frank Ocean didn’t want to do the song," adding that "He wanted to do rap, so we canceled him." Apparently Lana Del Rey was just over the entire thing, because Wilson explained that "Lana Del Rey, uh, she just canceled out on us." The record will still feature Kacey Musgraves, Zooey Deschanel, M. Ward, Nate Ruess, and members of the Beach Boys, but damn a Frank Ocean/Brian Wilson collaboration would've been cool.
