The full length album, 'Brainwashed', comes out in November...
A posthumous George Harrison album is to be released later this year, NME.COM can reveal.
‘Brainwashed’, will be released on November 18 and consists of material he was working on up until two months before he died of cancer in 2001. The album is his first of new material since 1987’s ‘Cloud Nine’.
The record has been produced by George, Jeff Lynne and his son Dhani Harrison, and features eleven new George Harrison compositions and one cover.
Speaking about the album, Jeff Lynne said: “Before we started working on the album, George Harrison and Dhani had collaborated extensively on pre-production. George Harrison would come round my house and he’d always have a new song with him. He would strum them on a guitar or ukulele. The songs just knocked me out.
“George Harrison constantly talked about how he wanted the album to sound and there was always that spiritual energy that went into the lyrics as well as the music.”
A final tracklisting will be announced shortly.
