George Harrison's widow has raised the possibility she will will finish some of the Beatles unreleased songs with her son Dhani.
Olivia Harrison said she talked to her 37-year-old son about working on the tracks: 'There are a lot of songs that are unfinished,' she explained. 'I think there's a project there. I just need time to get to it,' Billboard reported.
She was speaking at the the tenth anniversary of The Beatles Love by Cirque du Soleil at the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas, attended by Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and Yoko Ono.

Harrison, 68, revealed she is working on around 10 songs that will make up a new album of previously unreleased work.
She had hoped it would have been released by now, but fell ill with the flu and was hospitalised in February, which she said had 'derailed the whole situation.'

'Everything in my body is OK now, except I have a problem walking,' the Mexican author and producer explained.
Olivia met the Beatles lead guitarist in 1974 as a secretary at A&M Records and she gave birth to their son in August 1978.
The following month the couple married in a private ceremony in a register office in Henley-on-Thames.

Olivia moved into George's Oxfordshire mansion, Friar Park, close to the rowing hotspot, where she still lives today, following her husband's death from cancer in 2001.
In December 1999, an intruder broke into the house and attacked George and his wife, leaving him with a punctured lung, more than 40 stab wounds and head injuries.
Olivia has kept busy since George's death and promoted the The Beatles: Rock Band video game with Yoko Ono, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr in 2009.
While in 2011 she co-produced the film George Harrison: Living in the Material World with Martin Scorsese and co-authored the accompanying book.

New George Harrison Music? His Widow Says ‘Maybe’
On July 14, along with Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono and Olivia Harrison attended the 10th anniversary of The Beatles Love by Cirque du Soleil at the Mirage Hotel in Las Vegas -- with an updated, remixed soundtrack by Giles Martin, son of the Fab Four’s late, legendary producer George Martin -- and spoke to Overheard about percolating music projects of their own.

Harrison said she and Dhani Harrison, her 37-year-old musician son with George Harrison, have talked about him finishing some unreleased tracks that her late husband left behind. “There are a lot of songs that are unfinished,” she said. “I think there’s a project there. I just need time to get to it.”

Ono told Billboard that she’s working on an album of approximately 10 songs that she had intended to have out by now, but she was blindsided by the flu (and briefly hospitalized in February). “That derailed the whole situation,” she said. Ono explained that “everything in my body is OK now, except I have a problem walking,” adding, “I want to be a little more normal” before turning her attention back to the record.
