Ringo Starr has teamed up with Paul McCartney, Dave Grohl, and Finneas for a new five-song EP he recorded at home during the COVID lockdown.

Zoom In, which drops in March (2021), also features the track Here’s To The Nights, a collaboration with songwriter Diane Warren.

Ringo shared the song on Tuesday (December 15, 2020), insisting, “I wanted it out in time for New Years (sic) because it feels like a good song to end a tough year on”.

“Here’s to the nights we won’t remember and the friends we won’t forget and I am wishing everyone peace and love for 2021.”

Sheryl Crow, Jenny Lewis, Lenny Kravitz, Chris Stapleton, and Corinne Bailey Rae have also contributed to Ringo’s new EP.

Meanwhile, Starr is releasing a new photo book celebrating the 30th anniversary of his All Starr supergroup via a Los Angeles auction house.

The former Beatles star is setting aside signed copies of Ringo Rocks: 30 Years of the All Starrs for an upcoming Julien’s Auctions sale on December 16, 2020.

Proceeds will benefit The Lotus Foundation.

Starr founded his All Starr supergroup three decades ago and has since hit the world’s stages with some of rock and roll’s biggest luminaries, including Joe Walsh, who pens the book’s foreword, Dr. John, Billy Preston, Rick Danko, Levon Helm, Jack Bruce, Gary Brooker, Sheila E., Dave Edmunds, Peter Frampton, Ian Hunter, Howard Jones, Steve Lukather, and Richard Marx.

“The book also chronicles legendary All Starr performances and milestones including the band’s concerts at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, New York’s Radio City Music Hall, the Santa Barbara Bowl, the Civic Arts Plaza; the return to Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre–nearly 30 years to the day from when the first All Starr’s (sic) took the stage there; as well as the world-renowned exhibition, Ringo: Peace & Love at the Grammy Museum in 2012; Starr’s solo artist induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2015 by Paul McCartney, and more.”
