Ringo Starr just keeps on chugging along. He had some decent hits in the 70’s and seemed to fade away until making a comeback over the course of the last decade. He will never rival his bandmates in terms of songwriting or singing, but he brings a certain bouyant sense of fun with a distinctive voice that is always worth checking out.
Now he has a new release, ‘Ringo 2012’, out today in Europe and tomorrow in the US. To celebrate the release, NME is featuring a full stream for all EU territories, with others getting previews for all of the tracks. The album has nine tracks, and features guitarist Joe Walsh and many others such as Kenny Wayne Shepherd, plus Michael Bradford, Steve Dudas, Charlie Haden, Amy Keys, Kelly Moneymaker, Richard Page, Van Dyke Parks, Dave Stewart, Bruce Sugar, Benmont Tench, Don Was and Edgar Winter. Whew!
Note: In the US all you get are previews of all tracks. Still a good way to check out the new release.
