Ringo Starr is releasing a new studio album soon. It will be his 20th studio album! The album's title is "What's My Name." The album is currently available for pre-order and will be released on October 25, 2019. There are a few collaborations on the album, including one with Sir Paul McCartney. In the song, they pay tribute to their late friend and fellow Beatles star John Lennon.\r\n\r\nRingo and Paul come together to sing John's song "Grow Old With Me." Ringo sings the song, while Paul does the backing vocals and plays bass. The song was written by John just a few years before he passed away in 1980. Ringo was inspired to cover John's song after he ran into record producer Jack Douglas. Jack had produced John Lennon's album with Yoko Ono. It was called "Double Fantasy."\r\nWhy Ringo picked this song to cover\r\n\r\n\r\nAccording to NME, Ringo said, "Jack asked if I ever heard The Bermuda Tapes, John\u2019s demos from that time\u2026And I had never heard all this. The idea that John was talking about me in that time before he died, well, I\u2019m an emotional person. And I just loved this song. I sang it the best that I could. I do well up when I think of John this deeply. And I\u2019ve done my best. We\u2019ve done our best."\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nHe continued, "The other good thing is that I really wanted Paul to play on it, and he said yes. Paul came over and he played bass and sings a little bit on this with me. So John\u2019s on it in a way. I\u2019m on it and Paul\u2019s on it. It\u2019s not a publicity stunt. This is just what I wanted. And the strings that Jack arranged for this track if you really listen, they do one line from \u2018Here Comes The Sun.\u2019 So in a way, it\u2019s the four of us."\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nRingo decided to record this album in his home studio. He doesn't like the separation of a regular recording studio. He loves being at home, being with his wife, and inviting over his friends to help with the album.\r\n\r\n\r\nRingo has had this dream for a long time\r\nThe star also admits that he has had this dream since he was thirteen this years and feels blessed to have been able to perform for this long. In addition, he said, "When I was a teenager, my mom always said, \u201cSon, you\u2019re at your happiest when you\u2019re playing.\u201d And it\u2019s still true to this day. I\u2019m blessed. I had a dream back when I was thirteen, and just last night I played with all my friends at the Greek, and I\u2019ve been putting together All-Starr bands for 30 years. And it\u2019s still a thrill."\r\n\r\nIn conclusion, are you excited about Ringo's new album?\r\nLearn what Ringo's kids (and the other Beatles' kids) are up to these days!
