The full tracklist has been unveiled for former Beatle George Harrison's forthcoming studio album "Brainwashed" (Dark Horse/EMI Recorded Music), which he was working on prior to his death last November. The album -- to be released Nov. 19 -- will include 11 original Harrison songs as well as a cover of the standard "Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea."
"Brainwashed" was produced by Harrison with his son Dhani and Jeff Lynne, and features musical contributions by those three as well as drummers Jim Keltner and Ray Cooper, keyboardists Mike Moran and Marc Mann, harpist Jane Lister, and pianist John Lord. "Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea" features pianist Jools Holland (Squeeze) plus guitarist Joe Brown and bassist/tuba player Herbie Flowers from his band. Harrison's final recorded song, "Horse to the Water" (a collaboration with his son Dhani), appeared on Holland's 2001 album "Small World Big Band," bearing the forbidding copyright "R.I.P. Limited 2001."
That song does not appear on "Brainwashed," but the album will feature previously reported tracks "Pisces Fish" and the title cut, a caustic rock soliloquy about Harrison's former manager.
"I need to get that last song out of my system," Harrison told late Billboard editor in chief Timothy White in 1999. "To have someone sit at your table with your family every night and then betray your trust is one of the worst experiences imaginable. Sometimes songwriting is the only way I can respond to the outside world, to exorcise its demons."
The first single from the album to be shipped to U.S. radio outlets will be "Stuck Inside a Cloud."
Here is the complete track listing for "Brainwashed":
"Vatican Blues (Last Saturday Night)"
"Looking for My Life"
"Stuck Inside a Cloud"
"Run So Far"
"Never Get Over You"
"Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea"
"Rocking Chair in Hawaii"
