Today, UMe released Ringo Starr’s EP3 on 10 “vinyl and as a limited edition translucent royal blue cassette. In just 4 tracks – “World Go Round”, “Everyone and Everything”, “Let’s Be Friends” and “Free Your Soul” – Ringo covers a broad range of style and sound. Listen to EP3 here.
“Everyone and Everything” the new music video from Ringo premiered today to mark the vinyl release. The song was written by Linda Perry and the video was filmed by Kii Arens, who reflected, “the song Linda Perry wrote has a pretty strong message so we couldn’t take it lightly. Ringo truly puts his all into everything he does and is far more diverse than most people know. Like me, he remains a kid at heart that truly loves his art. I believe every shot in the “Everyone and Everything” video shows you exactly that.”
“I had so much fun making this record, and I love that the vinyl and this video for it are coming out as we head into Thanksgiving,” added Ringo. “As I’ve said before, every song on this EP relates to Peace and Love. And this track that Linda wrote for me has such a beautiful message, reminding us to be thankful, to be giving, to be more peace and loving. I feel we really captured the positive energy of the song in this video, it was so great working with Kii and I loved filming on the beach. I hope this brings everyone joy, peace and love as we start heading into the holidays.”
This is Ringo’s third EP which was initially released digitally and on CD in September to rave reviews:
“EP3” is an unabashed, sincere attempt at finding a little light in a downtrodden world……EP3 is pure Ringo, with his trademark baritone vocals set against upbeat, even buoyant lyrics”
“There is no filler, just excellent music. Each song emits Starr’s peace stance and the songs musically and lyrically fit together…..Starr still has a great deal to say, and record”
“Starr and company bash out a set of up-tempo and lyrically upbeat tracks that sound like nothing less than him having fun with his mates…Starr’s peace-and-love philosophy is genuine and infectious, and we should take any chance to bathe in that aural optimism.”
“music full of optimism”
