Sometimes this world can be a hard place
We wonder where we go from here
So many hurting bad
Lost everything they had
It’s hard to know what we can do

Give more love
Give more love
It’s what we know we need more of
From the heart, let it start
To flow to everyone

— Give More Love

Bonus tracks include: Back Off Boogaloo, You Can’t Fight Lightning, Photograph and Don’t Pass Me By.  This version of Back Off Booglaloo is based on the original recording Ringo made when he wrote the song. He recently 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.

In October Starr will hit the road in the US with his All Starrs, the same beloved line up he has performed with since 2012: Steve Lukather, Todd Rundgren, Gregg Rolie, Richard Page, Warren Ham and Gregg Bissonette. The tour will include a residency at Las Vegas, NV @ Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino. See www.ringostarr.com for full tour dates.
