"One Kind of Love" is a song written by Brian Wilson and Scott Bennett, released as the eleventh track on Wilson's eleventh studio album No Pier Pressure on April 7, 2015. A music video debuted online two months later in June.[1] It is one of the few songs on the album which does not give a writing credit to Joe Thomas.

The song was written for Bill Pohlad's film Love & Mercy and appears on its accompanying soundtrack.[2]

Critical reception

The Telegraph drew comparisons between it and the french horn in "God Only Knows".[3] In a review that called No Pier Pressure "inessential listening", the New York Observer wrote that "One Kind of Love" was evidence that "Wilson can still throw one hell of a melody out there."[4]
