This isn't your ordinary song release.
Mike Love of the rock band The Beach Boys, released a surprise track on Tuesday (Feb. 25) as a tribute to late Beatles band member George Harrison in celebration of what would have been the musician's 71st birthday.
The "California Girls" singer wrote the song, entitled "Pisces Brothers," in 2004 about a trip that he took with The Beatles to India in 1968. The title refers to the astrological sign he shares with Harrison.
"This being the 50th anniversary of The Beatles coming to America, I wanted to commemorate this incredibly significant trip we all took together to India," shares the 72-year-old Love. "It was enormously influential on all of us, most especially George."
Love continues, "The song is really sentimental for me, and meant to honor George Harrison's remarkable contribution to music. And how, in this one moment in time, we got together, as the song says, not fortune or for fame, but for enlightenment."
Harrison passed away from lung cancer in 2001 at the age of 58. He served as lead guitarist for the legendary English rock band.
