Albums Of The Week: Dhani Harrison | Innerstanding

The musical scion continues to blaze his own sonic trail through genres and sounds — while disappointing the old Beatles fans who wish he would be more like his dad.

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE:Grammy-winning musician and composer Dhani Harrison is back with Innerstanding, his first solo album in six years. “Here we are in a new world and here is the new album that has come forth from it,” he says.

The first track released from the album was the single Damn That Frequency, which features Blur’s Graham Coxon on saxophone. Coxon also contributes guitar on four other songs on Innerstanding. The album also features guest appearances by Liela Moss of The Duke Spirit and critically acclaimed Australian singer Mereki. Innerstanding was produced by Harrison and co-mixed with Grammy-winning producer Paul Hicks (The Beatles, Joe Strummer, The Rolling Stones).

As an artist who defies categorization, Harrison continues to explore the boundaries of music and creativity. His ability to seamlessly blend diverse influences while maintaining his individuality has solidified his place as a contemporary musical visionary. With each new composition, performance, and collaboration, Harrison invites us to join him on a sonic journey that knows no limits.

Originally stepping onto the global stage with his band thenewno2, Harrison first earned critical acclaim for his innovative sound and approach with performances at Coachella, Lollapalooza, and on multiple late-night TV shows. However, it was as solo artist that Harrison truly demonstrated his creative autonomy. 2017’s In///Parallel served as a testament to his evolution as a musician, weaving intricate melodies and a subject matter that forewarned much of what the world has experienced in the years following its release.

Harrison is also known for scoring film and TV projects as well as collaborating with an array of diverse artists including Wu-Tang Clan, Unkle, John McLaughlin, Annie Lennox, Pearl Jam, Nitin Sawhney, Perry Farrell, Prince, Regina Spektor and Fistful of Mercy (alongside Ben Harper and Joseph Arthur). Since his 2013 debut as a composer on Richard La Gravenese’s Beautiful Creatures, Harrison has gone on to score the Sundance Award-winning Matangi/Maya/M.I.A., for which he and his scoring partner Paul Hicks received an International Documentary Association Award nomination for Best Music Score. Additional scores include RZA’s Cut Throat City, Obey Giant: The Story of Shepard Fairey, Amazon’s Good Girls Revolt, Showtime’s White Famous, and the HBO docuseries The Case Against Adnan Syed.”
