Remastered versions of the original albums and an enormous amount of previously unreleased bonus tracks

Capitol Records/Universal Music will explore The Beach Boys‘ 1969-1971 period with a new archive release called Feel Flows – The Sunflower and Surf’s Up Sessions 1969-1971.

Available across a number of formats – including five-CD deluxe set and 4LP vinyl box – Feel Flows features newly remastered versions of Sunflower (1970) and Surf’s Up (1971) and boasts up to 108 previously unreleased tracks, including live recordings, radio promos, alternate versions, alternate mixes, isolated backing tracks and a cappella versions.

The five-CD deluxe edition features 135 tracks in total, and comes packaged as a 48-page hardcover book, which includes unreleased photos, lyric sheets, tape box images and new sleeve notes by Howie Edelson and new and archival interviews from Al Jardine, Brian Wilson, Bruce Johnston, Carl Wilson, Dennis Wilson, Mike Love, and others.

Abbreviated versions of Feel Flows are offered as 4LP vinyl box sets (black and coloured variants) and 2LP and 2CD editions.

This release has been assembled by Mark Linett and Alan Boyd, the team behind the SMiLE Sessions reissue from a decade ago.

Feel Flows – The Sunflower and Surf’s Up Sessions 1969-1971 will be released on 27 August 2021 (was 30 July).
