Ringo Starr has announced that his new album ‘Postcards From Paradise’ will be released on March 30.
The album will be Starr’s 18th studio release and will be made up of 11 original tracks, including a song written by Starr and his current All Starr Band – Steve Lukather, Todd Rundgren, Gregg Rolie, Richard Page, Warren Ham and Gregg Bissonette.
‘Postcards From Paradise’ was produced by Starr and recorded at his home studio in Los Angeles. Guest artists include Joe Walsh, Benmont Tench, Dave Stewart, Ann Marie Simpson, Richard Marx, Amy Keys, Peter Frampton, Nathan East, and Glen Ballard.
Ringo Starr will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio, where he will receive the Award for Musical Excellence. In an interview with NME last September, Starr asserted his belief that the rock genre will never disappear, and that bands will always “come through in the end”.
“The saving grace for me – I have to admit I’m not a big fan of the boybands dancing and that stuff – but the thing that saves me is there’s always bands out there,” he said. “There’s always bands playing somewhere, and they come through in the end.”
The ‘Postcards From Paradise’ tracklisting is as follows:
‘Rory And The Hurricanes’
‘You Bring The Party Down’
‘Postcards From Paradise’
‘Right Side Of The Road’
