It’s been a particularly active year for Beatles-related releases. Already, Paul McCartney’s announced his first new solo album in four years, and the band released a 50th anniversary deluxe reissue of their seminal Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. Now, Ringo Starr has confirmed his own new album, Give More Love, and he’s recruited an all-star lineup of collaborators that includes Macca himself.
The news of their collaboration was hinted at back in February, when Starr tweeted at his old bandmate, “Thanks for coming over man and playing Great bass. I love you man peace and love.” It marks the duo’s first new music together since Starr’s 2010 record Y Not.
Other collaborators include Joe Walsh, Peter Frampton, Benmont Tench, Edgar Winter, and more. Starr will head out on the road in support of the album this fall, His All-Starr Band (featuring Todd Rundgren) in tow.
Starr has also released the album’s title track, a charming and straightforward slice of pop-rock that emphasizes that “together, we can make a change.” Listen to it below via Spotify.
Give More Love arrives on September 15th via uME. Find the tracklist below, and note that the album’s four bonus tracks include new versions of “Photograph”, “Don’t Pass Me By”, “You Can’t Fight Lightning”, and “Back Off Boogaloo”.
