The Warmth of the Sun is a 2007 compilation of music by The Beach Boys released through Capitol Records. A successor to 2003's Sounds of Summer: The Very Best of The Beach Boys, The Warmth of the Sun is composed of fan favorites and hits that were left off its predecessor. Several songs were remixed in stereo for the first time. These are "All Summer Long", "You're So Good to Me", "Then I Kissed Her", "Please Let Me Wonder", and "Let Him Run Wild". The song "Wendy" appears as a new stereo remix with its middle eight cough edited out. This album also features an alternate mix of "Break Away" and the single versions of "Why Do Fools Fall In Love" and "Cool, Cool Water".

The Warmth of the Sun debuted at number 40 on the Billboard 200, selling 14,000 copies in its first week.[4]
