Record label of Australian release:

Ding Dong, Ding Dong by George Harrison was written as a New Year’s Eve singalong and released in December 1974 on his album Dark Horse. It was the album’s lead single in Britain.
Harrison took the lyrics from engravings he found at his nineteenth-century home, Friar Park, in Oxfordshire – a legacy of its eccentric founder, Frank Crisp. The song’s “Ring out the old, ring in the new” refrain has invited interpretation as Harrison distancing himself from his past as a member of the Beatles, and as the singer farewelling his first marriage, to Pattie Boyd.,_Ding_Dong
