Mike Love - legendary Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and co-founder/chief lyricist of The Beach Boys - presents Unleash the Love, a special double album featuring 13 brand new songs and 12 re-recordings of Beach Boys classics. Produced by Grammy-winning producer Michael Lloyd, Unleash The Love is a testament and continuation of Love's remarkable career. The new tracks range from rock, gospel, R&B and pop and celebrate Love's connection to the teachings of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and his journey to find personal love and peace.
Love's history with Transcendental meditation anchors a number of songs including "Ram Raj" a song celebrating the divine; "Pisces Brothers," a tribute to the late George Harrison and the experiences they both shared in India in 1968 and "Cool Head, Warm Heart" a breezy pop song, which borrows its title from a saying by Maharishi Mahesh. The album also includes a prayer for the planet "Only One Earth." As with all of the new tracks, a sense of concern is infused in every song: to change what you can, to transcend, connect to the planet and the people around you and give into the power of love.
In addition to the collection of Love original songs, the 2LP-set features new versions of classic Beach Boys hits such as "California Girls," "Help Me Rhonda," and "Good Vibrations," recorded with members of The Beach Boys touring band.
