Music hottest artists have teamed up to record the Beach Boys bubbly classic ‘God Only Knows‘ to launch the BBC’s new platform BBC Music. The track is also released as part of the BBC’s annual Children In Need charity event.
The song was broadcast earlier in the week on BBC One, Two, Three, Four and Radio 1, 2, 4, 6 and 5 Live, and featured 27 artists across all musical genres.
The magical clip shows-off one of the most star-studded line-ups, including Pharrell Williams, One Direction, Dave Grohl, Emeli Sande, Lorde, Florence Welch, Kylie Minogue, Sir Elton John, Stevie Wonder, Chris Martin, Sam Smith, Paloma Faith, Brian May, Jake Bugg, Jamie Cullum and, of course, Brian Wilson himself.
The collective group of musicians has been dubbed ‘The Impossible Orchestra’.
The new music strategy was revealed by the BBC in June this year.
