Brian Wilson took to Facebook recently to respond to fans who have been criticizing him about the artists he’s collaborating with on his new album.
In the post embedded below, Wilson tells fans that “it kind of bums me out” that they’ve been so upset about the former Beach Boy working with pop singers Zooey Deschanel and Lana Del Rey, and that while he shouldn’t “f*ck with the formula,” that “as an artist it’s my job to do that.”
This post was met with quite the positive response from fans, so much so that Wilson posted the status below today (June 12th):
Brian Wilson…communicating with fans on Facebook. What a crazy-awesome time we live in?!
