Last night, the Beach Boys made one of their first TV appearances since their 50th anniversary reunion tour kicked off. Aside from their performance, the appearance on Jimmy Fallon’s show also featured an interview with longtime members Brian Wilson and Mike Love (who also gave a shout-out to The Roots for playing his band’s music).
Fallon sat down with Wilson and Love to discuss The Beach Boys’ signature harmonies, and Fallon even joined on an impromptu version of “Barbara Ann.” The reunited group played three songs, “In My Room,” “Wouldn’t it be Nice” and the group’s new single, “That’s Why God Made the Radio.” Check out the interview and three performances below.
The Beach Boys’ new album, That’s Why God Made the Radio, is set for a June 5 release on Capitol/EMI Records. You can take a listen to the studio cut of the album’s first single here.
