That Lucky Old Sun = 2 CD / DVD Digipack = (CD)
A brand new studio album from legendary writer, producer, arranger and performer Brian Wilson. The DVD features live and documentary footage of Brian performing at the legendary Capitol Studio A in May 2008. A musical love letter from Southern California, That Lucky Old Sun shimmers with sun-dappled choruses and arrangements that swell and swirl as if carried by the Pacific tides. One of the songs, "Midnight's Another Day," has been described by MOJO magazine as "glorious." The album is narrated in transitional interludes spoken by Wilson as 'That Lucky Old Sun,' the storyteller. The narratives, cameos on life and the heartbeat of Los Angeles, propel the album's musical story. Last summer, Wilson found himself singing the 1949 classic song, "That Lucky Old Sun," which became the inspiration for a unique approach to what would become his next studio release. He bought Louis Armstrong's version of the track and was inspired to collaborate lyrically with his band mate Scott Bennett, and with Van Dyke Parks, his old 'sidekick,' to create vibrant spoken narratives. Wilson debuted 'That Lucky Old Sun' at London's Royal Festival Hall in September 2007 in a series of six sold-out and critically-acclaimed concert performances celebrating the theatre's restoration. Wilson describes That Lucky Old Sun as an "interwoven series of 'rounds' with interspersed spoken word," and as an autobiographical travelogue of sorts.
