Brian Wilson Back In Studio

November 18, 1997 12:00 AM ET

Brian Wilson has quietly signed a deal with Irving Azoff's Revolution Records and is at work on a new solo album, tentatively due in the spring.

Joe Thomas, who co-produced the 1996 Beach Boys tribute album Stars & Stripes, is producing the album at Wilson's home studio, located 65 miles west of Chicago. Azoff says Wilson's new material "sounds unbelievable." Thomas is also enthused: "Brian is sounding better than ever" and is handling all of the lead and background vocals on the album himself. So far, 18-20 tracks have been recorded, Thomas says.

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
