Legendary Beatles drummer Ringo Starr will release a four-track album, EP3, on September 16.
The four new tracks were all recorded at Starr’s Roccabella West studio, featuring longtime collaborators Steve Lukather, Linda Perry, Dave Koz, José Antonio Rodriguez, and Bruce Sugar.
The songs span the spectrum of pop, country, reggae and rock and roll. EP3 will be available digitally and on CD on September 16, and on 10″ vinyl and as a limited edition translucent royal blue cassette on November 18.
“I am in my studio writing and recording every chance I get. It’s what I have always done and will continue to do, and releasing EPs more frequently allows me to continue to be creative and give each song a little more love,” said Ringo.
The upbeat rocker “World Go Round,” written by Lukather and Joseph Williams, continues to spread Ringo’s positive message of hope and togetherness.
Written by Linda Perry, “Everyone and Everything” captures the classic Ringo Starr sound and features Ringo on vocals, drums and percussion along with Perry on guitar and percussion.
Featuring an infectious dance groove, “Let’s Be Friends” was written by Ringo’s longtime engineer Bruce Sugar along with Sam Hollander, with Ringo Starr handling vocal and drum duties, Nathan East on bass, Lukather playing guitar, Sugar on keyboards, percussion and horn arrangement, handclaps and percussion by Sam Hollander, and Billy Valentine, Zelma Davis and Maiya Sykes on background vocals.
Written by Ringo and Sugar, the soothing, rhythmic sound of “Free Your Soul” transports the listener to an island beach on a clear warm night under a full moon.
