He covers Buddy Holly‘s “Think It Over” along with a new version of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Ledbelly[/lastfm]’s “Rock Island Line.” Ringo also re-records his own material, including “Step Lightly” from the Ringo album and “Wings” from Ringo the 4th.

One song that Beatles fans will definitely like is “In Liverpool,” which has Ringo reflecting on his youth in the birthplace of the Fab Four!

As for the collaborations, listen for Joe Walsh, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Dave Stewart (with whom he wrote a musical), Edgar Winter and many more contributing across scattered tracks!

You can purchase Ringo 2012 from Amazon HERE and check out the re-release of “Wings” off the new album!
