At the end of last week, Beatles drummer Ringo Starr announced the upcoming release of his 19th solo studio album, Give More Love, Starr’s first since Postcards From Paradise in 2015. The album includes a host of well-known guest collaborators, including Joe Walsh, Peter Frampton (“Laughable”), Richard Marx (“Speed of Sound”), Glen Ballard (“Electricity”), Dave Stewart, Don Was and Timothy B. Schmit.
But easily the most exciting collaboration on the list is the only other living Beatle–Sir Paul McCartney himself. Starr hinted at the duo working together earlier this year, when he tweeted a picture of the two in the studio. Now, it has been confirmed that McCartney is featured on the new track “Show Me The Way,” which also features studio work from Walsh, who is Starr’s brother-in-law. This marks the first collab between McCartney and Starr since Ringo’s 2010 record Y Not.

The album will also be paired with four bonus tracks: The recently recovered original recording of Starr’s “Back Off Boogaloo” that the drummer found while moving houses, plus re-recorded takes on three Starr hits featuring Alberta Cross and Vandaveer.
