The Beach Boys offically announced today that they are reuniting with founding member and chief songwriter Brian Wilson for a 50th-anniversary tour and album.

The 50-date international tour will kick off in April with a headlining performance at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, and the reunited lineup has already recorded several songs for the new album, including a new version of their 1968 hit, “Do It Again.”

The album will be released next year by Capitol and is being produced by Brian Wilson. Capitol/EMI also plans to commemorate the Beach Boys’ half century-long career by releasing a new hits collection and career-spanning box set.

“This anniversary is special to me because I miss the boys,” Wilson was quoted as saying in the official announcement, “and it will be a thrill for me to make a new record and be on stage with them again.”
