The Beach Boys recently released a previously unreleased song titled “Carry Me Home.” “Carry Me Home,” which was recorded in 1972, will feature on an upcoming box set.
“Written and produced by Dennis Wilson about a soldier dying in the Vietnam War, the hauntingly beautiful, downtempo ballad features powerful vocals from Dennis and Blondie Chaplin over plaintive piano, country-tinged pedal steel, acoustic guitar, marching drums and the band’s trademark harmonies,” a press release explained. “This marks the first official release of the oft-bootlegged track that has circulated among hardcore fans in inferior audio quality for years.
“It has long been one of the most requested songs to be released from the group’s archive. Although it has been considered for release over the years, Sail on Sailor – 1972 finally provides the historic and musical context the song has long deserved.”
Sail On Sailor – 1972, is a new expansive multi-disc and digital box set that will release on November 18 via Capitol Records/UMe.
