Ringo's new album announced

Ringo's new album is called "Give More Love", out Sep 15.
Birthday boy Ringo Starr's (77) new album "Give More Love" will be released on September 15, 2017. Recorded at his home studio in Los Angeles, Give More Love has 10 new tracks featuring collaborations with friends including: We’re On The Road Again - featuring Paul McCartney, Joe Walsh, Edgar Winter, Steve Lukather; Laughable - co-written and performed with Peter Frampton as well as Benmont Tench, Timothy B Schmidt, Richard Page and Amy Keys; Show Me The Way co-written and performed with Steve Lukather and with Paul McCartney; Speed of Sound co-written with Richard Marx and featuring Steve Lukather, Peter Frampton and Nathan East; Standing Still - co- written with Gary Burr; King of the Kingdom - including performances by Dave Stewart and Edgar Winter; Electricity - co-written with Glen Ballard and featuring Joe Walsh and Don Was; So Wrong For So Long - co written and performed with Dave Stewart; Shake It Up - co written and performed with Gary Nicholson and including Don Was and Edgar Winter. Also, four old songs are included in new versions, including the "White album" song, "Don't Pass Me By". Another re-do is "Back Off Boogaloo", which he already re-did before, on his "Stop and Smell the Roses" album in 1981. This version of "Back Off Boogaloo" is based on the original recording Ringo made when he wrote the song. He recentlty discovered the tape when he moved houses. The other three bonus tracks are collaborations based on performances from Starr’s 2016 Peace & Love Birthday event. Alberta Cross performed "You Can’t Fight Lightning" and Vandaveer performed "Photograph" and "Don’t Pass Me By". Starr loved their renditions and asked them to each record them for his new album, also adding his own vocals.
There will be a physical CD as well as a downloadable album, and a vinyl edition will be available about a week after the CD, according to Music Direct.

I'm surprised we needed ANOTHER re-do of Back off Boogaloo.
