Give more love (2017)

Starr, Ringo (UMe, )
Give more love Cover

Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr are reunited again on Starr's 2017 album, Give More Love. McCartney, along with Edgar Winter, Joe Walsh and Steve Lukather, perform on “We're on the Road Again,” co-written by Starr and Lukather, which leads off the album. McCartney contributes bass and also backing vocals.

The album features a host of famous names on its 10 main tracks, including Peter Frampton, Benmont Tench, Timothy B. Schmit, Richard Page, Nathan East, Steve Dudas, Dave Stewart and Don Was. The album in digital and CD form also includes four remakes of past Ringo songs: “Back Off Boogaloo,” “Don't Pass Me By,” “You Can't Fight Lightning” and “Photograph.”

“Back Off Boogaloo,” taken from the original recently rediscovered record, features Jeff Lynne. “You Can't Fight Lightning” is sung by Ringo and Alberta Cross, while “Photograph” and “Don't Pass Me By” has Ringo and Vandaveer. Cross and Vandaveer performed at Ringo's 2016 Peace and Love event.

Starr told writer David Wild in the announcement for the album that he and Dave Stewart had originally planned to do a country album, but that was scrapped after he decided to tour again with the All-Starr Band. “That’s how I ended up making another album at home and writing all kinds of songs with all kinds of friends -- everybody giving more love and just letting the music flow,” he told Wild. “We do it in the guesthouse. I don’t know exactly what I’m going to get each time, but this one seemed to have its own great energy from the start.”
