Harrison's 'My Sweet Lord' to Be Re-Released

“My Sweet Lord,” the 1970s hit by former Beatle George Harrison who died of cancer last week, is to be re-released, Britain’s Sun tabloid reported on Friday.

If the mystical hit is out in time for Christmas, it is widely expected to top the lucrative festive singles chart.

“We will be re-releasing ‘My Sweet Lord’,” the Sun quoted a spokesman for record company EMI as saying.

The company could not be reached immediately for comment.

“My Sweet Lord” was the first number one single by a solo Beatle and appeared on Harrison’s album “All Things Must Pass” after being digitally remastered.

British media speculated it would be re-released as a single soon after Harrison died at the age of 58. The Sun said the star’s family had finally agreed to the idea and that the proceeds would go to charity.
