Undercover.fm reports the single, “Don’t Fight the Sea,” includes an archive vocal by the late Carl Wilson. The song was composed by both Jardine and Terry Jacks and previously recorded for Jardine’s album, A Postcard From California.

The b side is an a capella version of the Beach Boys song “Friends.”

Jardine told Undercover.fm; “We felt that the song had a nice basic message of friendship. I also like the idea of that song, because the vocals are a bit under appreciated.  So this release was a perfect place to showcase the idea of harmony and friendship.  Everybody is behind it 100%, that’s the nice part.

The limited edition single will be released on Tuesday, April 19. Roughly 90 of the first run will be signed by all four Beach Boys and the first 1,000 copies will be pressed in white vinyl with a red label.
