God only knows how this came together…

In celebration of the launch of BBC Music, the BBC released an all-star cover of the Beach Boys’ “God Only Knows.” It is a sort-of sequel to the BBC’s 1997 all-star cover of Lou Reed’s “Perfect Day.”

In its fantastical video, complete with butterflies, diamonds, and a trip into the sky, Brian Wilson, the songwriter, is joined by myriad talent. Participants include: Lorde, Elton John, Stevie Wonder, Florence Welch, One Direction, Pharrell, Chris Martin, Dave Grohl, Sam Smith,  and many, many, many more.

Watch, and be amazed, below:
