Brian Wilson is my favourite songwriter of all time, behind some of the most beautiful and beguiling works ever put on vinyl. Now he is set to revisit some of his finest works on new album At My Piano. As the title suggests, this is a selection of some of his finest songs (‘Good Vibrations’, ‘God Only Knows’, elements of ‘Smile’…) stripped back and played on the piano, although these days he has probably not put it inside a sandbox to get that surf feeling.

At My Piano arrives on November 19th (the day before my birthday, what a lovely present, Brian) and you can hear God Only Knows below, as well as see the stellar tracklisting.
