Ex-Beatle Harrison to Release New Single
LONDON (Reuters) - Former Beatle George Harrison has
recorded his first single since being treated for cancer
earlier this year, a music industry source said Wednesday.
Harrison, 58, co-wrote "A Horse to Water" with his son
Dhani and recorded it with British musician Jools Holland.
"It was wonderful to work with one of the great, legendary
artists in the world," Holland said in a statement. "George
suggested we do a track and this finally happened this month."
Harrison recorded the song at home on Oct. 1, less than six
months after undergoing radiotherapy for a brain tumor. He was
treated for throat cancer in 1997.
A spokesman for Holland described the new song as a cross
between 1960s Bob Dylan and early 1970s John Lennon. "It is not
a ballad and it is not rock -- I think George Harrison fans
will be intrigued," the spokesman added.
Harrison, the youngest Beatle, survived being stabbed in
the chest by an intruder at his home in Henley-on-Thames,
Oxfordshire, west of London, in 1999.
He was widely reported to have moved to a luxury villa in
the Swiss canton of Ticino in August as he recovered from the
latest bout of surgery.
His single will appear on Holland's album "Small World, Big
Friends," to be released in Britain on Nov. 19, in which
Holland plays duets with some of the biggest names in music,
including Dire Straits' Mark Knopfler, Van Morrison and Eric
Harrison was unavailable for comment.
