Sir Paul McCartney could be set to work with George Harrison once more, over ten years after his former Beatles bandmate passed away.

The new collaboration could happen as part of an album Harrison's wife Olivia is working on using demo tapes and song ideas her husband had before his death in 2001. It is believed she will approach a number of big names musicians to help finish the album.

“There is some more material,” Olivia told The Express. “There may be a minute of something he was writing and it will never be finished. I had an idea of giving unfinished songs to different people – with one going to Paul.”

It is believed that McCartney would be interested in the plan with a source close to the star telling the paper that:"Paul is certainly keen to work on a George song." Adding: "He misses George badly and this is an opportunity he won’t pass up.”

It is believed that Eric Clapton, Tom Petty and Jeff Lynne will also be involved in the album, which is planned for release in 2013.
