"I loved re-recording the song with Hanson. I think they brought a great energy to it," Love says

The Beach BoysMike Love and Hanson have teamed up for a new rendition of the Beach Boys’ “It’s OK.” The song was originally featured on their 1976 15 Big Ones album.

Written by Brian Wilson and Mike Love, the original song climbed to Number 29 on the Billboard Hot 100 when it was released. It also appeared as the B-side to “It’s Gettin’ Late” in 1985.

“The Beach Boys have a storied history with this song and the new version of ‘It’s OK’ continues this legacy,” Love said in a statement. “It’s a reminder that regardless of what’s going on in your life… get out and enjoy the summer.”

Taylor Hanson added, “Twenty-five years ago, we were singing Beach Boys classics to an audience of a handful at our first concert. To be asked to collaborate with Mike Love, a music icon to us, was a total honor. There are few things greater than being granted mutual respect from an artist you greatly admire.”

On the Michael Lloyd-produced new version of the track, the group’s buoyant harmonies capture the sun-kissed vibes of the original while adding some playful pep to the punchy new arrangement.
