New Ringo album out in June

Postby EddieV » Tue Mar 20, 2007 10:15 am

Ringo Starr's upcoming studio album, titled Liverpool 8, will be released in June. Longtime producer and collaborator Mark Hudson says that the album, which he co-produced with Starr and Dave Stewart of Eurythmics, features a new "synthetic" direction for Starr, and steers him away from the Beatle-esque direction of his past four albums. The title of the album refers to Starr's original Liverpool postal code.

Quote:
In addition to working on the studio set with Starr, Hudson has wrapped up work on Starr's still-untitled live album which was the soundtrack to the 2005 Soundstage concert aired on PBS. The show, which was taped in Chicago, is due out on May 8th.

The concert featured Starr and his former band the Roundheads tackling such Beatles and solo classics as "With A Little Help From My Friends," "Octopus' Garden," "Yellow Submarine," "Photograph," "It Don't Come Easy," "Back Off Boogaloo," and others.

Ringo's last four records have ranged from good to great. I don't know what you're so worried about.

Stay positive.

Peace and Love...

So when is this album coming out?? I'm looking forward to it! There doesn't seem to be any buzz about it at all.

Apparently it is delayed until the Autumn along with the forthcoming Roundheads Live CD!

I hope Ringo goes back to his days of inventive, quirky drumming with the FABS (and in some fellow Beatle solo albums such as CLOUD NINE) instead of playing it safe - solid but kinda boring.....

No complaints on the level of musicianship of the roundheads.

The best of.. is due in August and Liverpool 8 is now delayed until Jan 2008. As for the live CD with the Roundheads your guess is as good as mine. Maybe they were re-scheduled around Macca's recent activity!!!!

He says in his August video update, that he and Mark Hudson produced the album,
then they brought-in Dave Stewart to "over-produce" the album...

Choose Love I felt was kind of a step-backward...

I hope Liverpool 8 is as good as VErtical Man or Ringo Rama...
