The tune is featured on a new album titled California Music Presents Add Some Music, which is out from from Omnivore Recordings on April 23. The LP also will include an unreleased
According to Rolling Stone:
The album is the brainchild of David Beard, the editor and publisher of the long-running Beach Boys fanzine Endless Summer Quarterly. He brought the various factions of the Beach Boys, minus Brian Wilson, back together for the new version of “Add Some Music to Your Day,” which also includes contributions from Brian Wilson’s daughters Wendy and Carnie Wilson; Al Jardine’s son Matt Jardine; and Mike Love’s children Christian, Hayleigh, and Ambha Love. It was produced by Rob Bonfiglio, who is married to Carnie Wilson and plays guitar in Brian Wilson’s touring band. A portion of the profits will benefit Feeding America.
...The album is rounded out by a previously unreleased version of the 1968 Beach Boys song “Friends,” created by the band members’ kids, and various solo tracks by members of the group and their associates, including Mike Love’s “Ram Raj,” Al Jardine’s “Jenny Clover,” David Marks’ “Long Promised Road,” Bruce Johnson’s “She Believes in Love Again,” and Rob Bonfiglio’s “Golden State.”
