The Beach Boys premiere "That's Why God Made the Radio"

The Beach Boys

Yesterday, we brought you in-studio footage of the reunited Beach Boys talking about and recording their new single "That's Why God Made the Radio". There was even a preview of the track in there too. Well, today the surf-pop kings decided to let loose the whole thing in the form of an animated lyric video. You can check that out below. If you like what you hear, download the tune at your major online retailer of choice.

As promised by Mike Love, the melodies are massive and plentiful. The song's lyrics focus on the impact radio has had on their lives, especially as young adults. Oh and it's also about "spreading the love and sunshine to a whole new generation". Brian Wilson & Co. release their first album in sixteen years on June 5th via Capitol.
