Ringo Starr reveals details of new EP, ‘EP3’

Ringo Starr has revealed the details of a new EP called “EP3”.

The Beatles drummer has said the project will go on sale September 16 through Universal.

In a press release it is said that Starr recorded the four new songs that are part of ‘EP3’ in his home studio in Roccabella West. He said he worked with longtime collaborators on the project, including Steve Lukather, Linda Perry, Dave Koz, José Antonio Rodríguez and Bruce Sugar.

Following its digital release, physical copies of ‘EP3’ will be available from November 18 on CD, 10-inch vinyl and a limited edition translucent royal blue cassette. You can reserve the album here.

EP3 Tracklist:

1. ‘World Round’

2. ‘Everyone and Everything

3. ‘Let’s do it friends

4. ‘Free Your Soul’

The project is described as a collection of “feel good lyrics” and “easy tunes”. Starr also sings and plays drums on all the tracks.

Speaking about the project, he said: “I’m in my studio writing and recording whenever I can.

“It’s what I’ve always done and will continue to do, and releasing EPs more often allows me to continue to be creative and love each song a little more.”

Separately, late Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins and Starr will appear in a new documentary.

Let There Be Drums!, which opens in theaters on October 28, is directed by Justin Kreutzmann, son of The Grateful Dead drummer Bill Kreutzmann.

According to Deadline, it “examines the essential role drums play in big bands and how music is passed down from generation to generation.” It is intended to include one of Hawkins’ last interviews before he died in Bogotá, Colombia on March 25 at the age of 50.

Starr will be joined by The Police’s Stewart Copeland, Jane’s Addiction’s Stephen Perkins, Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith and former Guns N’ Roses drummer Matt Sorum.

Kreutzmann took on the project “to speak with the world’s most influential drummers in hopes of better understanding his father and the instrument that defined his life.”
