Capitol Records in the U.S. and Parlophone Records in the U.K. will re-release George Harrison's single "My Sweet Lord" on January 14, 2002 as a tribute to Harrison, who died two weeks ago.
Profits from the release of the single will go to charity, although specific details are still not confirmed. A Parlophone spokesman said, "As a tribute to George Harrison, it is vital that we make sure that the single is released when all elements are firmly in place. A release date of January 14, 2002 will allow us to do this."
"My Sweet Lord" is the original version, which reached No. 1 in the U.S. and U.K. in January 1971. The upcoming three track CD single will feature the songs "Let It Down" and the 2000 version of "My Sweet Lord" which appeared on the recent reissue of All Things Must Pass.
