Brian Wilson Presents Smile is the fifth studio album by Brian Wilson, released in September 2004. Its production began as a series of concert performances which were then adapted for a studio album, as well as a 2005 direct-to-video concert film of the same title. The album received great acclaim and earned Wilson his first Grammy Award, later being featured in several "greatest albums" lists. Upon release, it peaked at number 7 on the UK Albums Chart.
The project was originally conceived in 1966 as Smile, a concept album recorded by the Beach Boys written in collaboration between Wilson and lyricist Van Dyke Parks. It was intended to succeed the group's 11th studio album Pet Sounds and was based on the engineering methods of their single "Good Vibrations". Many years after the project was shelved due to personal and technical difficulties with recording, Wilson chose to revisit the material with Parks as a specially arranged live concert performance. Motivated by the unexpected positive reception, a studio-recorded version was then released by Wilson as a solo album.
