Dhani Harrison

Dhani Harrison announced today (June 16) that he’s signed with BMG Records and will release his first solo album this fall. Next month, he’ll perform his first solo show, at the Echo in Los Angeles, on July 24. He’ll also be playing Panorama Music Festival in New York City, July 30.

From the announcement: “The Grammy Award-winning musician has been busy since the release of his last album with his collective thenewno2. In the past four years Harrison has scored a handful of feature films, marking his big screen debut as a composer on Warner Bros.’s Beautiful Creatures, as well as Sir Ben Kinglsey’s 2015 critically acclaimed Learning to Drive. Harrison also scored four TV series including Tony Goldwyn and Richard LaGravenes’s The Divide, two seasons of the Paul Giamatti-executive produced show Outsiders, and Amazon’s original series, Good Girls Revolt.”

The announcement notes: “Harrison is stepping out and making music for the first time under his own name. Echoing his influences over the past few years as a composer, Harrison’s new music paints a cinematic soundscape.” The upcoming album is still unnamed.

Thenewno2 have made numerous late night TV appearances over the years, performing live on The Late Show with Conan O’Brien five times and on the The Tonight Show. They’ve also performed at Coachella and Lollapalooza.

Harrison has collaborated with an eclectic array of musicians during his career alongside like-minded artists such as Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA, Regina Spektor, Pearl Jam, Prince and performing with Ben Harper and Joseph Arthur in his other long-time project, Fistful of Mercy.

In April, in a touching and humorous speech, Harrison inducted his longtime friend, Jeff Lynne, and the Electric Light Orchestra, into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s Class of 2017.
