Avenged Sevenfold has released a new cover of the Beach Boys "God Only Knows."

"Of all these new songs we've recorded, this one was the most difficult in terms of figuring out an arrangement," vocalist M. Shadows said. "Figuring out the middle vocal melodies was also challenging. We wanted to make the song a little darker by adding a flanger and some haunting vocal nuances. The Beach Boys have always been an influence, so it was fun to tackle this one from arguably the best album of all time, Pet Sounds."

The band's take on "God Only Knows" follows the release of their version of Mr. Bungle's "Retrovertigo", the band's first-ever Spanish-language recording, "Malagueña Salerosa", and a rendition of "Runaway", the 1961 song made famous by Del Shannon. The band recorded all four tracks with producer Joe Barresi.
