Legendary Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductee, Grammy® Winner, New York Times Best-Selling Author, and Co-Founder of The Beach Boys Mike Love debuted a new music video for the 1968 Beach Boys classic "Do It Again," on July 18 on Billboard.com

The music video was directed by John Stamos, and produced by Pat Kudej with Alex Fauver as cinematographer. 

The video features Love, McGrath and Stamos singing together against a white backdrop with historic images of Mike performing livewoven in throughout. 

The single was released on July 4 as The Beach Boys performed on the Washington D.C. mall as part of PBS' A Capitol Fourth Independence Day celebration.
"This song is about friends coming together revisiting the fun of their youth," Love said. "Stamos and I have so much love and respect for each other and our 33 years of friendship is still going strong. It was great to have Mark's amazing talent and energy to play off of as we rediscovered one of my favorite tracks."
"I thought I had done some pretty cool things in my life, but when one of your idols calls you and asks if you want to duet on one of your favorite Beach Boys songs, it's truly the pinnacle of a very fortunate career," McGrath said. "It was such a joy working with Dr. Mike Love, and legendary producer Michael Lloyd to add a modern feel to 'Do It Again,' but of course maintain the genius integrity of the original. Having my good friend John Stamos laying down some monster drums on the track was the icing on the cake...yeah, I think it's gonna be a great summer."
"I wanted the world to see the Mike Love I know, and his family, friends and bandmates know," Stamos said. "A joyful guy who doesn't take himself too seriously, but always takes his music seriously. A guy that LOVES singing his songs and is truly happiest when doing so. I think Mike comes off like the funny, cheerful rascal that he really is. He's in the middle of a very happy and grateful time in his life and I think we captured that."
