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.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
