Somewhere in England is the ninth studio album by English musician George Harrison, released in June 1981 by Dark Horse Records. The album was recorded as Harrison was becoming increasingly frustrated with the music industry. The album's making was a long one, during which conflicts with Warner Bros.
Supposedly, George began work on SOMEWHERE IN ENGLAND almost immediately afterwards, and was said to be ready for the record stores around the fall of 1980. But Dark Horse's parent company, Warner Bros. Records, did not really care for the final product, and insisted George re-enter the studio to record new material. Naturally, he was none too happy about this proposition, but acquiesced, making sure some of the new songs hit the company right where they hurt. George Harrison may have been a little ticked off by his record company's nitpicking over SOMEWHERE IN ENGLAND, but he still did well enough for himself in creating one of his better albums, in my opinion. Soundwise, it proved that George was ready to transfer into the high-gloss & high-concept atmosphere of the 1980s, a route Paul would continue in as well.

George Harrison began recording Somewhere in England in March 1980, continuing in his home studio at Friar Park at a leisurely pace over the next 7 months. When George initially delivered his album to Warners in September 1980 they deemed it too laid back. Clearly, they were caught up in the prevailing mood of the new decad. ost-punk-itus. George agreed to drop four of the tracks that he’d delivered and set to work on some new songs.
