Sitting behind his kit, the Beatles legend began his message by pounding on the drums and screaming, “Let’s make a noise!”

“Hello. So nice to hit your drums, make a noise,” he then declared. “Well, it’s Ringo here. Peace and love, everybody. I haven’t been on my site for a long time, but as you know, I’ve been busy.”

Starr explained that part of his “busy-ness” involved working on his new four-track EP, Crooked Boy, which, he pointed out, “was produced by Linda Perry, and written … by her.”

He added, “She produced everything, even me. And I love it.”

The 83-year-old rock legend also mentioned the fact that he’s in the middle of making a full-length country album. He jokingly commented, “Ooh, more than four tracks,” referencing the fact that since 2021, he’s released five EPs. His last studio album, What’s My Name, came out in 2019.

Ringo then brought up his tour plans with the All Starr Band.

“[W]e’re going on the road again,” he said. “So around, like, the 20th of May is the first gig. I hope to see everybody there, and if I see you, peace and love. And if I don’t see you, peace and love.”

He finished his message by saying, “And it’s a beautiful day in L.A. Peace and love, see you next time.”
