Check out ‘Here’s To The Night’ by Ringo Starr:
“When Diane presented this song to me I loved the sentiment of it,” Starr explained of the track’s genesis. “This is the kind of song we all want to sing along to, and it was so great how many wonderful musicians joined in.
“I wanted it out in time for New Years because it feels like a good song to end a tough year on. So here’s to the nights we won’t remember and the friends we won’t forget – and I am wishing everyone peace and love for 2021.”
The Zoom In EP marks the first major offering from Ringo Starr since his 20th studio album, 2019’s What’s My Name.
