With autumn only a few hours away, Dhani Harrison has premiered "Summertime Police," a new track from his solo debut, In///Parallel, which will be released October 6 via BMG Records. The etheral track is the third single to be shared from the new album.

"I have a fairly lucid memory. I remember events from my life and put music to them," said Harrison in a press release.

"Each track [on the album] is pretty much a scene from my past. My gift from the universe is that I really enjoy changing, and that's why I'm now happy being Dhani Harrison. With everything you accomplish, you gain a freedom to do something else in your life, not unlike a video game, where you unlock different levels, powers and weapons. I had to go through the process, and I unlocked a lot of different stuff in myself, which allows me to be who I am now."

Best of all, the track, which is synth-heavy and ambient—and even captures something of an Eighties MTV vibe (or perhaps early Nineties Peter Gabriel)—finds a way to utilize the guitar in multiple roles; there's even a solo section that kicks in at 3:41. It's the sort of solo you could hum, making it composition within a composition.
