Ringo Starr’s New Album ‘Give More Love’ Out in September; Stream Title Track from Star-Studded LP

Today, Beatles legend Ringo Starr celebrates his 77th birthday – happy birthday, Ringo! The man formerly known as Richard Starkey has also taken the opportunity to announce an anticipated new solo album, Give More Love, which will be released on September 15 (with vinyl coming a week later).

Give More Love finds Ringo getting by with the help of his friends, to make an oft-cited pun, as this record is seriously heavy on special guests. From the press release:
