We get by with a little help from our friends.
Almost 50 years since The Beatles went their separate ways, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr have recorded a song together.
And what more, the song was written by another of their friends and former band mates, John Lennon.
“I just loved this song. I sang it the best that I could. I do well up when I think of John this deeply. And I’ve done my best. We’ve done our best,” Ringo said of the track “Grow Old with Me,” which will feature on his upcoming album What’s My Name.
“The other good thing is that I really wanted Paul to play on it, and he said yes. Paul came over and he played bass and sings a little bit on this with me. So John’s on it in a way. I’m on it and Paul’s on it. It’s not a publicity stunt. This is just what I wanted. And the strings that Jack [Douglas] arranged for this track, if you really listen, they do one line from ‘Here Comes The Sun.’ So in a way, it’s the four of us.”
What’s My Name is out on October 25th.
