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.
