“New” Harrison Song from Son Dhani Channels Dad

While Sir Paul has a new song out called “New”, and his son James is playing and promoting HIS new album, George’s son, Dhani, has something “new” for us two (or the Two of Us), however, this new song has something old, something “new”, something  borrowed and something”Blue”.


Dhani has just released a remake of his dad’s song from “Let it Be”, called “For You Blue”. It’s mesmerizing, and so reminiscent of The Beatles version.  Like Dad, who gave to charity throughout his years, beginning with The Concert for Bangladesh, Dhani is donating all of his proceeds to George Harrison’s Material World Foundation, which is currently focused on helping create awareness for the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation and its mission to cure spinal cord injury.

Dhani recorded the new version of “For You Blue” with fellow musicians Blake Mills, Aaron Embry, and drummer Jim Keltner, one of George’s best buddies. The song was originally recorded in 1969 and then released on The Beatles’ Let it Be album a year later.

You can hear the new song in the Beatle Brunch Club downloads, but why don’t you buy it? It’s only a buck-22 and it’s for a good cause.

Here are some reviews from fans who bought the song on i-tunes.

Ok, this sounds terrific but is also scary at the same time. Sounds exactly like George! What a fantastic tribute to his father.

Nice – thanks Dhani!!!

Great cover of “For You Blue” by Dhani Harrison. Fantastic production – vocals – great guitar work. “Beefs up” the Beatles/George’s arrangement from Let It Be. Would love to see/hear Dhani do a whole album of George’s lesser known material with this band. Please downlaod from iTunes as proceeds go to charity.
