Every album tells a story.
Introducing "Final Sessions," a new audio documentary series about music's most notable releases. The first season is a 4-part limited series detailing the long and fascinating narrative behind "Losst And Founnd," singer and songwriter Harry Nilsson's last album of new music.
Known for timeless hits like "Everybody's Talkin'," "Gotta Get Up" (the theme to Netflix's "Russian Doll") and "Without You," Harry was working on his final album right up to his untimely death in 1994, at the age of 52. Now, 25 years later, producer and collaborator Mark Hudson (Ringo Starr, Aerosmith, Ozzy Osbourne) and a cadre of friends, such as Jim Keltner, Van Dyke Parks, Jimmy Webb and even his son Kiefo Nilsson, have helped bring the album to life. "Final Sessions" is an in-depth exploration of Harry's music, his close friendship with the Beatles, his family life, and how his backstory informed his classic songs.
A new episode airs every Friday in November, leading up to the release of "Losst And Founnd" on November 22nd.
He sang about love and death — sometimes in the same song — up until the very end. Harry Nilsson, says one friend, had a boxing problem with God.
Harry's final album, "Losst And Founnd" on Omnivore Recordings, is now available everywhere. Listen to it, as well as a bunch of songs that inspired this episode, here.
