GIVE MORE LOVE features a blink and you’ll miss it moment referring to the “Fab Four”. In Don’t Pass Me By, Starr croons “I’d like to be under the sea” as the track slowly fades out.
“That’s a homage to one of my songs called Octopus’s Garden,” he explained about the 1969 song in the famous Abbey Road album.
“I thought it was an interesting thing to put those songs I’ve done before but with these young bands,” he said.
Collaborations between the last two surviving members of the Beatles always generate media frenzy. When Ringo posted a picture on Twitter of the two of them working together back in February, the news quickly spread.
“When we’re together it’s good because we spent a lot of very intense time together, a lot of loving time together,” he told at a London hotel.
“For me, he’s just an incredible human being, beside an incredible bass player,” he added.
The reminiscing in “Give More Love” goes further still than his time in history’s top-selling pop group.
“Electricity” references the Liverpool of his youth, and his Rory and the Hurricanes’ bandmate Johnny Guitar.
“He played so great. I have great memories of his playing to this day and that was a long time ago,” said Ringo, who now spends most of his time in Beverly Hills in the United States.
Ringo will’ll be doing eight shows in October at a Las Vegas casino followed by a short US tour.
“I’m not looking to retire, it doesn’t make sense for me,” he said. “I can go as long as I can hold the sticks.”
