While this may seem like very interesting news for music fans, Wilson apparently faced backlash for his choices, and posted a response on his facebook page:
To my fans: it kind of bums me out to see some of the negativity here about the album I’ve been working so hard on. In my life in music, I’ve been told too many times not to fuck with the formula, but as an artist it’s my job to do that – and I think I’ve earned that right.
I’m really proud of these new songs and to hear these great artists sing on them just blows me away. I love what we’ve done.
I would think that after making music for more than fifty years, my fans would understand that I’ll always do what’s in my heart – and I think that’s why you are my fans. So let’s just wait until the album comes out because I think you just might dig it as much as I do.
Love and Mercy, Brian
This will surely be an interesting collaboration for each of this artists, and is definitely an album to look out for. In the past, Wilson has described the new album as “very mellow kind of stuff, mellow harmony, not very much rock ‘n’ roll yet,” but this new announcement might shake things up a bit.
