Singer/songwriter Gary Wright is set to open up about his relationship with late Beatles star George Harrison in a new memoir.

The “Dream Weaver” and “Really Wanna Know You” hitmaker will publish “Dream Weaver: Music, Meditation, and My Friendship with George Harrison” in October.

A press release announcing the new book reads: “‘Dream Weaver’ is ultimately a story of a spiritual journey and Gary’s lifelong friendship with George Harrison. At 33, Gary Wright was at the highest point in his career. His album, ‘The Dream Weaver,’ had been on top of the charts for months with two hit singles – ‘Dream Weaver’ and ‘Love is Alive’ – and during the summer of ’76, he was part of a massive arena tour with Peter Frampton and Yes.

“Earlier, while still living in England, he recorded music with legendary musicians Eric Clapton, B.B King, and George Harrison, who would later become one of his best friends.

“In ‘Dream Weaver: Music, Meditation, and My Friendship with George Harrison,’ Wright illuminates key moments in his journey and offers an insider’s look at a tumultuous and revolutionary time in both the music and spiritual realms. Wright details how he formed the legendary rock group Spooky Tooth, and how his close friendship with ‘the quiet Beatle’ began and developed over the years as they wrote songs together, pondered philosophical issues, and journeyed to India.”
