Brian Wilson and Van Dyke Parks’ first collaborative album, 1995’s Orange Crate Art, is being reissued on 2xCD and 2xLP, marking the first time it’s ever been pressed to vinyl. It’s out June 19 via Omniverse Recordings. It’ll feature previously unreleased session outtakes and instrumentals, including Wilson and Parks’ cover of “What a Wonderful World,” which you can hear below.
Parks and Wilson first came together to collaborate on the sessions for the Beach Boys’ Smile, in the 1960s, for which Parks was a guest lyricist. The two toured together in 2004 before the eventual release of The Smile Sessions in 2011.
