The four surviving Beach Boys - Al Jardine, Brian Wilson, Mike Love
and Bruce Johnston - recorded this song as a charity single to raise money for those affected by the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan. Guitarist Al Jardine had the idea for the release and he approached the rest of the band to record the track, which originally appeared on Jardine's 2010 full-length solo album A Postcard From California
. An archived vocal from the late Carl Wilson was also added to the recording.
