Genre Rock, pop, surf rock
Producer Brian Wilson
That's Why God Made the Radio is The Beach Boys' upcoming twenty-ninth studio album and their first album of all-original material in 20 years. The album is part of the band 50th Anniversary and upcoming tour, and will feature eleven tracks. Brian Wilson will act as producer of the album, with Mike Love as executive producer.
In late 2010 reports began to circulate that the surviving members of the Beach Boys would reunite for a 50th Anniversary tour and album. Despite some uncertainty  and initial denials, on December 16, 2011 it was announced that Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, Bruce Johnston and David Marks would reunite for a new album and 50th anniversary tour in 2012 that would include a performance at the New Orleans Jazz Festival in April.
Wilson and Love discussed the upcoming album and tour in a interview on February 16, 2012. The duo said the album was halfway done with Wilson doing the writing and stating that all of the songs will flow into each other. The album will end with a Pet Sounds- and Smile-inspired suite. One track titled, "That's Why God Made the Radio" is filled with classic Beach Boys harmonies and one of their best songs ever according to Wilson.
According to Bruce Johnston, all of the songs are originals, no cover songs, no guest musicians on the album. Each band member sings lead on at least one of the songs while Johnston contributed one song titled, "She Believes in Love Again", a song he wrote in 1985 however he said he was unsure if the song would make the final cut since the label picks the album's tracks, not the band. Johnston compares the album to one of the band's least-successful albums but fan favorite, Sunflower while Al Jardine said the album is "very lush, very PetSound-ing". 
The first single from the album, "That's Why God Made the Radio" made its national radio debut April 25, 2012 on ESPN's Mike and Mike in the Morning.. It was released to the bands YouTube channel later that same day, with accompanying lyrics. In addition the song has been released and is now available as a single in digital outlets such as iTunes and Amazon.
