Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson Duets With Late Glen Campbell On ‘Strong’

The Beach BoysBrian Wilson teamed up with the late Glen Campbell for a posthumous duet of Campbell’s song, “Strong.”

“Strong (with Brian Wilson)” marks the latest entry in the upcoming duet collection Glen Campbell Duets – Ghost on the Canvas Sessions, which arrives on April 19th.

“Strong,” which originally appeared on Campbell’s 2011 “farewell” album Ghost on the Canvas, describes Campbell’s onset of Alzheimer’s Disease. Campbell co-wrote “Strong” with producer Julian Raymond.

Campbell vows to his wife to maintain his resilience in the face of the disease, confessing, “All I want to be for you is strong.”

In the duet, Wilson shares Campbell’s verses quite convincingly and with great clarity. His signature harmonies add a lovely feel.

“Glen was a great singer and a great guy. Our intention in doing ‘Strong’ was to echo back to ‘Guess I’m Dumb’ and the times that Glen and I worked together. It’s kinda got that vibe to it and I dig the sound of it,” Wilson said of the posthumous collaboration.
