The Beach Boys songwriter Brian Wilson has reportedly asked The Beatles producer George Martin to remix some of his former band's classic songs.

Martin and his son Giles recently re-worked a number of Beatles hits for Las Vegas Cirque Du Soleil stage show Love.

The 81-year-old claimed it would be his final job, but Wilson was impressed and wants the veteran to collaborate with him on a similar project.

A source tells British newspaper the Daily Express: "Brian attended the American premiere of Love last year and is a big fan. He now wants to convince George and Giles to remix some of his old Beach Boys songs for a new album.

"As far as Brian's concerned it would be a dream to work with George.

"While it's unclear if George will agree, it's known he's a big admirer if Brian Wilson as a songwriter so he might well persuaded to put off his retirement one last time."
