Rare Harrison songs set for release

Highlight Story

Jeff Lynne is all set to launch his pal, the late Beatles star George Harrison's second posthumous album. Harrison died in 2001 and left behind a vast catalogue of incomplete songs.

Electric Light Orchestra leader Lynne is said to have agreed to work on the tracks at the request of Harrison's widow Olivia.

A close friend of the late musician, appeared in his 1980s group 'The Travelling Wilburys' and produced Harrison's final album 'Brainwashed', which was released in 2002 after the star's death. He has also worked with Harrison's musician son Dhani.

Apparently, George half-finished loads of songs and often simply forgot about them. He amassed an enormous amount of material in the last few years of his life. It's likely there will be another album's worth.
