The Beach Boys Will Celebrate Their 60th Anniversary with a Special Reissue

It will be their greatest hits collection ‘Sounds Of Summer’

Capitol/UMe is organizing a year-long celebration of The Beach Boys’ 60th anniversary, starting in June 2022. 

The campaign will include new music releases, official new music videos for classic songs, immersive Dolby Atmos mixes, and more. It begins with Capitol/UMe’s June 17 release of a newly remastered and expanded edition of the group’s career-spanning greatest hits collection, Sounds of Summer: The Very Best Of The Beach Boys.

The album was first released in 2003 where it reached the US Top 20 and was on the Billboard 200 chart for exactly two years. It was certified platinum in 2004, double platinum in 2005, and triple in 2012. It will now feature a vastly expanded tracklist and improved audio quality.

The original 30-track retrospective will be augmented with another 50 beloved songs for a total of 80 tracks, embracing the Beach Boys’ earliest hits and fan-favorite deeper cuts, spanning their 1962 debut LP Surfin’ Safari to 1989’s Still Cruisin’.

The Beach Boys say in a statement: “It’s hard to believe it’s been 60 years since we signed to Capitol Records and released our first album, Surfin’ Safari. We were just kids in 1962 and could have never dreamed about where our music would take us, that it would have such a big impact on the world, still be loved, and continue to be discovered by generation after generation. This is a huge milestone that we’re all very honored to have achieved. And to our incredible fans, forever and new, we look forward to sharing even more throughout the year.”
