Previously-unheard music by George Harrison is set to be released.

The Beatles legend left behind a lot of unfinished material before his death aged 58 in 2001 and his widow Olivia and son Dhani, 37, are keen to get the tracks completed and released for his fans to hear.

She told Billboard's Overheard column: "There are a lot of songs that are unfinished.

"I think there's a proj

It won't be the first time Dhani has assisted with his father's music, as an accomplished musician himself, he helped to record 'My Sweet Lord' hitmaker's final album 'Brainwashed', which was released posthumously in 2002.

The legendary band are also set to be the focus of a new Ron Howard film, 'The Beatles: Eight Days A Week', that covers their touring career from 1962 to 1966, and is due for release in September 2016.

Fans got to hear new music from George earlier this year as he appears on Eric Clapton's LP 'I Still Do' on a track called 'I Will Be There'.

Before the record's release, the tracklisting showed a credit to L'Angelo Misterioso - which was the pseudonym the musician used when he played guitar on Clapton's song 'Badge', which featured on Cream's 1969 album 'Goodbye'.

Harrison and Clapton were close friends in the 60s and Clapton even featured on The Beatles' 'White Album' in 1968, providing the solo to 'While My Guitar Gently Weeps'.

However, their friendship was effectively ended when Clapton had an affair with Harrison's wife Pattie Boyd and went on to marry her in 1979, two years after she divorced the former Beatle.

But the two music legends did eventually reconcile their relationship and became close again.

Hi there. This is Damian from Guitar World magazine. As confirmed by Eric Clapton (when I spoke to him in the spring), George Harrison is not on Clapton's 'I Still Do' album. It was a misunderstanding caused by all the "angelo" nonsense. Fans believe it is Ed Sheeran. Again, Harrison has nothing/zero to do with Clapton's new album. You can read my interview by googling "guitar world Clapton I still do.' Thanks. --DF
