Postcards From Paradise

I couldn't say it better than Rolling Stone magazine in 2012,
"Every Ringo Starr album is a concept album. The concept is: Man, Ringo, what a dude." 
It's been three years since Ringo's last studio album was release, Ringo 2012, an album that held promising reviews with some of Starr's greatest solo work, including "Wings".  Since his seventeenth album release Starr has kept himself busy, from book releases, preforming at The GRAMMY'S receiving, on behalf of The Beatles, The Lifetime Achievement Award, becoming a member of GQ Men of The Year, being accepted into The Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame, to traveling around the world with his All-Starr Band. It's about time that the beloved drummer and musician got back into the studio to record his eighteenth album, Postcard's From Paradise.

The title of the album is fitting for the recording location; Ringo's home studio in Los Angeles. The album will be revolutionary for Ringo Starr and his current All-Starr Band, as it will be the first album to include a track written and recorded by the band; including Steve Lukather,  Richard Page, Todd Rundgren, and Gregg Bissonette. Amongst other well-known musicians like Joe Walsh, Benmont Tench, Dave Stewart, Ann Marie Simpson, Richard Marx, Amy Keys, Peter Frampton, Nathan East, Glen Ballard, and others will appear on the new album.
"If I am recording and you're in town and drop by, you're going to be on the record!" -Ringo Starr,
