The Beach Boys are releasing single for Japan relief funds

Late for Record Store Day, but obviously not too late to raise money for a good cause, the Beach Boys will be releasing a new 7” single tomorrow (4/19) to raise money for victims of the earthquake and Tsunami in Japan. The single will include the song “Don’t Fight the Sea” along with an unreleased a capella recording of the song “Friends,” originally recorded in 1968.

For vinyl fanatics, the first one thousand copies will be pressed on a limited edition white vinyl with a red label. The remaining will be pressed on regular black vinyl. All four remaining Beach Boys are on board with support for this release, and all proceeds are going to Red Cross Relief Japan.
