The US singer-songwriter honours The Beatles star with a magical performance during a week-long TV tribute.

Paul Simon paid tribute to the late George Harrison last night by covering The Beatles' iconic song, Here Comes The Sun.

Performing as part of 'George Harrison Week' on US TV show Conan, the singer-songwriter played a beautifully simple rendition of the world-famous record to mark the release of The Apple Years 1968 - 75'.

He joins a host of musicians hitting Conan O'Brien's stage to remember the British star's back catalogue as the eight-disc box set – a remastered compilation of Harrison's first six studio albums – hits stores this week.

Beck kicked off the celebrations on Monday with a cover of 1970's solo hit 'Wah-Wah' and both Norah Jones and George Harrison's son Dhani are set to follow.
