Ringo Starr has some good news for his fans – he’s releasing a new album and touring again in 2015.
The former Beatles drummer made the announcement about his new release in a YouTube video.
“I’ve finished the record, mixed the record and next year, it will be out on Universal Records. That’s the good news,” he said.
The 74-year-old singer also thanked fans for supporting his extensive 2014 tour with his All Starr Band, which featured Toto’s Steve Lukather, Mr Mister’s Richard Page, original Santana singer Gregg Rolie, Todd Rundgren and drummer Gregg Bissonette.
Ringo added: “And while I’m here, we want to thank all of you who supported us while we were touring… And we may be coming your way, February and March, so look out for that.”
The as-yet-untitled 17th album will be the follow-up to his 2012 record, Ringo 2012.
Ringo, who was recently named the recipient of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s Award for Musical Excellence, will receive his honour at Cleveland’s Public Hall on April 18, 2015. He was also honoured with an award by GQ Magazine for his humanitarian work.
