The version of the song “Grow Old With Me” appears on Ringo Starr’s upcoming album, “What’s My Name”.
It was one of the last songs by John Lennon before his death in 1980 and was released posthumously on “Milk and Honey” in 1984.
Ten years later, McCartney, Starr and George Harrison flirted with the idea of re-recording the song while working on “The Beatles Anthology.”
The new version of “Grow Old With Me” features Starr on drums and vocals, McCartney on bass and backing vocals, and Joe Walsh on The Eagles on guitar.
Starr said he was motivated to record the song after meeting Jack Douglas, who produced “Double Fantasy” by Yoko Ono and John Lennon.
The album “What’s My Name” will be released on October 25th. Starr has collaborated on this record with Edgar Winter, Dave Stewart, Benmont Tench, Steve Lukather, Nathan East, Colin Hay, Richard Page, among others.
