Dhani Harrison, the only child of Beatle George Harrison, has just released the second single from his upcoming debut album, the curiously titled "IN///PARALLEL."

The new song, "Admiral of Upside Down," opens with "delicate, fingerpicked electric guitar and dissonant strings," reports Rolling Stone. Then, "the arrangement explodes into a psychedelic rock climax, highlighted by a blistering guitar solo and Harrison's gravelly growl."

Harrison, 39, not only looks like his famous father, who died of lung cancer in 2001 at 58, he's got bona fide guitar chops. He worked with Jeff Lynne of Electric Light Orchestra and the Traveling Wilburys to complete George Harrison's posthumously released album, 2002's "Brainwashed"—and won a 2004 Grammy Award for Best Pop Instrumental Performance for the track "Marwa Blues."

Harrison was also front and center in 2004 when an all-star band capped his father's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction with "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," a performance made even more memorable by Prince's blistering guitar solo.

"Admiral of Upside Down" comes two months after the debut single, "All About Waiting," which accompanied breaking news of the premiere album, due out October 6.

"The record is about self-discovery, self-love, self-healing," Harrison said in an earnest statement. "You can't be loved until you learn to love yourself. You can't help others until you learn to help yourself."
