Suddenly faced with rapidly changing circumstances, artists and venues around the globe have wasted no time coming up with innovative ways to keep the music playing … without leaving the house.
One such example is Rolling Stone’s new IGTV series titled In My Room. The first episode kicked off with a very special performance by legendary Beach Boy, Brian Wilson. Sitting at the piano in his California home, Wilson kicks off proceedings with a short instrumental performance of 1963 classic “In My Room”. From there, Wilson launches into a bright, upbeat piano-led rendition of the Beach Boys’ 1968 comeback hit, “Do It Again,” followed by a heartfelt take on his 1988 solo single “Love and Mercy.” Watch below:
“I was sitting in my room and the news came on TV/A lot of people out there hurting and it really scared me,” Wilson sings. “Love and mercy, that’s what you need tonight/Love and mercy to you and your friends tonight.”
Rolling Stone will be releasing episodes every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday … “with legacy artists and newer names, across genres and across the globe. It will be an intimate, unforgettable experience that you won’t want to miss.”
