Ringo Starr recently announced plans for his latest solo LP Give More Love, confirming rumours that his former bandmate Paul McCartney was involved in the making of the record. Now, the surviving members of the Fab Four have unveiled one of their collaborative tracks from the upcoming album.
"We're on the Road Again" was co-written by Starr and McCartney, and it marks the pair's first musical collaboration in seven years. Joe Walsh of the Eagles, Steve Lukather of Toto, and Edgar Winter also make guest appearances on the track.
Give More Love is due out on September 15 via uMe. A vinyl release is set to follow on September 22.

A concert DVD documenting the 2009 "Change Begins Within" charity concert benefiting the David Lynch Foundation will be released September 1st. The concert notably featured a Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr reunion, as well as performances from Eddie Vedder, Sheryl Crow, Donovan and more.
The Change Begins Within show took place April 4th, 2009 at New York's Radio City Music Hall. The lineup also featured My Morning Jacket's Jim James, Moby, Ben Harper, Paul Horn, Angelo Badalamenti and Betty LaVette, as well a special appearance from Jerry Seinfeld.
The setlist for the concert DVD has many collaborations and closes with McCartney's "Cosmically Conscious" and the Beatles' "I Saw Her Standing There." McCartney and Starr also performed several tracks on their own, though fittingly came together for a rendition of "With A Little Help From My Friends."

The worst was Good Day Sunshine
213. “Good Day Sunshine,” Revolver (1966): Paul McCartney was welcome to write all the happy, upbeat, cheery-cheery songs he wanted. But this one is beyond the pale. It’s blaring, received, and strident. Even by McCartney standards (“Getting Better,” “Hello Goodbye”) the title is inane. It could have been “Yum Food Delicious,” or “Hot Sex Baby,” or any other three random words McCartney took out of his Young Man’s Collection of Positive Synonyms — and note that of these three choices McCartney chose the blandest. McCartney’s piano playing, which graced so many Beatles songs, right up to “A Day in the Life,” is a parody of itself. It’s the worst song in the Beatles’ classic period. And it ruins Revolver, otherwise the most consistent and mind-blowing collection of pop-rock songs ever conceived by man.
