Starr's new al­bum two years in the mak­ing

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Ringo Starr started plan­ning his new al­bum just months af­ter 'Post­cards From Par­adise' was re­leased. The for­mer Bea­tles mem­ber is due to drop his 19th stu­dio ven­ture 'Give More Love' in Septem­ber, and his long­time pro­ducer Bruce Sugar has said the team started work on the al­bum shortly af­ter the re­lease of 2015's 'Post­cards From Par­adise' be­cause the star "likes to plan his life years in ad­vance." Bruce said: "It wasn't long af­ter 'Post­cards' came out [that we started work­ing on it]. Ringo likes to plan his life years in ad­vance. I think he went on tour af­ter that and then when he got back we started look­ing at some dif­fer­ent ideas. "We're real happy with it. Ev­ery­one who's heard it can't wait till it's put out there in the uni­verse." And Bruce also talked about what it's like to work with the 77-year-old mu­sic icon in the stu­dio, where he claimed the process was very "ca­sual". He said: "It's very ca­sual, es­pe­cially when it starts out. I just go over to his home stu­dio. And we just play around with some dif­fer­ent synth ideas and bring in a few friends of his ini­tially and see if he can get the ball rolling, kind of get a feel for what he wants to do." Bruce has high praise for 'Give More Love', as he's even said the record could be the "best mu­sic" he's recorded with Ringo. Speak­ing to Bill­board mag­a­zine, Bruce said: "I think it's the best mu­sic I've done with Ringo. I think it's the best mu­si­cal al­bum we've done. We'll see what hap­pens." 'Give More Love' is due to be re­leased on Septem­ber 15.
