Secret Harrison album reported

Songs recorded in months before death

LONDON — George Harrison reportedly recorded a new album in secret in the last months of his life and was playing the songs to family and friends in the days preceding his death Nov. 29.

The record is said to have the working title “Portrait of a Leg End,” a twist on the former Beatle’s iconic status as well as a reference to the giant cartoon foot in the credits of the 1970s TV series, “Monty Python’s Flying Circus.” Harrison was a big Python fan.

Harrison is thought to have been working on 25 tracks, most of which are new but some of which date from the 1980s.

Earlier this year, Harrison re-released a remastered version of his classic 1970 album, “All Things Must Pass.” It is unknown when the new record will be released.
