Celebrating their 50th Anniversary this year, The Beach Boys have performed more than 50 concerts since April and had their highest-ever debut on Billboard’s albums chart last month with their critically acclaimed new studio release, That’s Why God Made The Radio.

The Beach Boys’ 50th Anniversary Tour recently concluded its North American run and is now underway in Europe before heading to Australia later this month. The legendary band is pleased to announce plans for the CD and digital release of two new commemorative hits collections by Capitol/EMI on September 21.

12 remastered Beach Boys studio albums will also be released by Capitol/EMI on September 21.

The Beach Boys’ new 50th Anniversary Greatest Hits collection features 20 of the band’s most popular songs, including “California Girls,” “Good Vibrations,” “Surfin’ U.S.A.,” “Wouldn’t It Be Nice,” “God Only Knows,” “Kokomo,” their latest single “That’s Why God Made The Radio,” and many more.

A deluxe, career-spanning 2CD box and digital collection titled Greatest Hits: 50 Big Ones will also be released, featuring 50 Beach Boys favourites, including two songs from the band’s new album -- the title track “That’s Why God Made The Radio” and a new single version of “Isn’t It Time,” which will be serviced to radio in September. The 2CD lift-top box package also includes an expanded booklet with newly written liner notes by Rolling Stone contributing editor David Wild and seven postcards.

Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1988 and recipients of The Recording Academy’s Lifetime Achievement GRAMMY Award, The Beach Boys are an American institution that is iconic around the world.
