New studio album from George Harrison?
The List reports that Olivia Harrison is contempleting a new release from the estate of George Harrison. A source said: "George half-finished loads of songs and often just forgot about them. There is probably an album's worth of material." Recently, Olivia revealed she wanted to do something with her husband's incomplete songs. She said: "There are lots of tracks. Some are closer to completion than others and with those I'd ask for help." The List believes Jeff Lynne will be called upon to produce a finished album, possibly together with George's son Dhani. WogBlog has heard that Dhani presented the idea of a boxed set of George's unreleased songs to EMI/Parlophone a couple of years ago, but they rejected it, mirroring Warner Bros' rejection of the initial version of George's "Somewhere in England" album. Maybe Parlophone is testing the waters with the new compilation CD "Let It Roll - Songs of George Harrison"?
