Wilson says the record will feature rock & roll classics and perhaps some original material, saying “I can write rock’n’roll.” He didn’t go into detail about which rock songs he would cover. Though no firm release date is set, Wilson told BBC it would be out “maybe by the end of the year.”
Wilson’s last album No Pier Pressure was released in 2015. He is currently playing Pet Sounds in its entirety on the Pet Sounds 50th Anniversary World Tour. His memoir I Am Brian Wilson comes out Oct. 11.
