Ringo Starr Gets Meta With Paul McCartney, Joe Walsh on New Song. Edgar Winter, Steve Lukather also appear on “We’re On the Road Again,” which highlights Starr’s upcoming solo LP’ Give More Love’.
Ringo celebrates goofing off on the tour bus and “[kicking] ass” onstage in his new all-star track “We’re on the Road Again,” featuring rock icons Paul McCartney, the Eagles’ Joe Walsh (Starr’s brother-in-law), Edgar Winter and the song’s co-writer, Toto’s Steve Lukather.
Lukather’s snarling guitar riff and Paul’s surprisingly punk-styled bass guitar anchor the arena-rock track, which highlights the drummer’s upcoming 19th solo LP, Give More Love. “We play really tight; we play really loud,” Ringo sings of his live band, who spend their downtime “telling stories, having a laugh/ singing my song ‘Photograph.'” Walsh, Winter, Paul and Lukather all contribute to a punchy blast of backing vocals on the chorus.
Ringo first teased his studio reunion with McCartney in February, tweeting a photo of the Beatles rhythm section. “Thanks for coming over man and playing Great bass I love you man peace and love,” he wrote.
The album is out in digital and CD format on September 15th, with a vinyl edition following the next week. The release will include four bonus tracks: A recently recovered original recording of “Back Off Boogaloo” and re-recorded versions of Starr songs “Don’t Pass Me By,” “You Can’t Fight Lightning” and “Photograph.”
