OK fine Ringo, we lied that you walking off the Regis And Ripa set was the only way we were gonna talk about your new album. Because it is pretty noteworthy that you thought it prudent to go back to EMI now, for the first time since ’75, right when everybody else is swimming for shore. It’s also pretty amazing to see you and Dave Stewart in the same camera frame, here, ’cause it sorta reminds us of Multiplicity, and we haven’t thought about that movie in a long time! And finally, although the song itself is a banal slog, your Liverpudlian trips down memory lane are infinitely more interesting than most anyone elses. So, we’ll say it again: Ringo’s got a new album.
Liverpool 8 is out now via Capitol.
