"My Sweet Lord" Re-Release Set For January 14th

The charity selected to benefit from the re-released original version of "My Sweet Lord"--coming out in both the U.S. and the U.K. on January 14 as a tribute to George Harrison--was founded by the musician himself nearly 30 years ago. Profits from sales of the new single will go to the Material World Charitable Foundation, which was set up by Harrison in 1973 at the time of his Living In The Material World album release, according to U.K.'s Parlophone Records. The charity received royalties from nine of the 11 songs from that album. Material World supports other charities worldwide, specifically those working with children and the poor. Parlophone is teaming with Capitol Records for the U.S. reissue, and said the re-release comes "due to public demand." The single will feature new artwork with an original photograph taken by Harrison, and it will also include the new version of "My Sweet Lord" that Harrison recorded for the 2001 All Things Must Pass reissue that celebrated the landmark album's 30th anniversary. Harrison died at age 58 on November 29 after a long battle with cancer. -- Sue Falco, New York (launch.com)
