Disgraced Australian Rolf Harris is reportedly writing a revenge album called Justice for All from the confines of prison, which, according to The Sun, is believed to be a message for victims who have accused him of sexual abuse.
85-year-old Harris is currently seeing out his prison sentence of five years and nine months after being convicted of 12 counts of indecent assault against women as young as seven to eight years old.
“Making music is helping Rolf survive prison. But rather than keep his material to himself, he’s telling those around him he has every intention of releasing it,” an identified “source” told The Sun.
Tracks are believed to include Can’t Keep That Dingo Down and A Bird In The Hand (Is Worth Two In The Bush), with Rolf reportedly hoping to release the record at the end of this year, when he believes he will be free.
“The stuff has rockier influences than the music he’s known for, because he wants to get across his anger at what he sees as injustice,” the source told The Sun.
News of the album comes after The Mail reported in June 2015 that Rolf penned a song called Woodworm from inside prison, believed to be about his victims and compensation culture. The song allegedly included lyrics like “Come and join the feeding frenzy girls”.
In response, Rolf’s victims’ lawyer Liz Dux, at the time called for his chance for parole to be taken away. “The point of parole is for people to show some sort of remorse and here is someone behaving as he was before, with disdain and an attitude that he can behave how he wants,” Dux explained.
Under Britain’s parole laws, Harris could be released from jail in May next year.
Following his conviction, Harris was kicked out the ARIA hall of fame and has been stripped of his Order of Australia Medal.
