Dhani has also released the second single from the album, “Admiral of Upside Down.” According to a press release, “The flourishing orchestral song has the motion of a never-ending cycle, emblematic of personal growth and evolution, which offers listeners a perspective into Harrison’s own developments and introspective thoughts that he’s explored while creating the album. In crafting this solo project, he’s taken a deep dive into his own identity, and from that has emerged an audio experience of self-awareness. ‘The record is about self-discovery, self-love, self-healing,’ Harrison explains. ‘You can’t be loved until you learn to love yourself. You can’t help others until you learn to help yourself.’ In this new stage of his musical transformation, Harrison steps it up with a grand-scale vision that begs for a spectacular live presentation. The sound stems inspiration from visionary icons like David Bowie, Radiohead and Massive Attack, to fellow film composer Hans Zimmer. ‘It’s an introspective trip from where I was to where I am now,’ he says about the album. ‘I had things happen during recording this that changed my perspective on everything.’”
