As previously reported, The Beach Boys’ 50th anniversary reunion will include a new studio album, the first to feature all surviving band members since 1995′s Stars and Stripes Vol. 1. Now, a new promo video confirms a June 5th release for the yet-to-be-titled LP, and offers a brief preview of the lead single,”That’s Why God Made the Radio”. Check it out below.

Speaking with Billboard.com, Bruce Johnston said the album is “all brand new,” adding “There’s a lot of what you’d hope to hear from Brian (Wilson) on there. It’s not a quilt or a pot luck dinner; it’s not like, ‘OK, everybody show up with your songs.’ It’s not one of those kind of albums. There’s a lot of Brian in there, and Mike (Love). It’s just nice to know there is a Mike Love and a Brian Wilson still around to write together.”

In support of the release, The Beach Boys kick off their extensive North American tour tomorrow night in Tucson, AZ. Check out the full docket underneath the promo video.
