Ringo Starr Releases New EP, With Four New Songs, Ahead of Atlantic City Show
Beatle icon Ringo Starr is releasing new music one week ahead of his headlining show with his All-Starr band at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Sept. 24.
Starr’s third EP, titled simply – EP3 is now available digitally and on CD right now and will be available on 10” vinyl and as a limited edition translucent royal blue cassette on November 18, 2022. It features four new songs–World Go Round”, “Everyone and Everything”, “Let’s Be Friends” and “Free Your Soul”. All the songs were recorded at Starr’s Roccabella West studio. The tracks feature collaborators Steve Lukather, Linda Perry, Dave Koz, José Antonio Rodriguez, and Bruce Sugar.
“Every song on this EP relates to Peace and Love. When I was in the Beatles we started looking at the world in the 60’s and thanks to the hippies a lot of us had a change of mind and peace and love and helping each other and being kind if you can became our goal,” Starr said in a statement. “So I always look for songs that speak to that and all these songs have the same sentiment just written in a different way. I also love the magic of making a record. I have a lot of fun and I am open minded, and it’s great to see what happens.”
“Everyone and Everything“ written by Linda Perry, echoes that theme with the lyrics:
“Show an act of kindness don’t expect it back. We could learn to be forgiving, maybe teach someone the same – everything needs changing today….”
“Linda is so great, a lot of fun to be around and one of the most beautiful human beings, heart and soul, in the world,” Ringo said. “She wrote this track and I loved the sentiment of it.”
