Ringo Starr announced that his new LP, which is currently untitled, is complete. The former Beatle posted a video update to his website recently to let fans know what to expect in 2015. Starr will be a busy guy next year since he's going to be inducted as a solo artist into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame alongside Joan Jett, Stevie Ray Vaughn and Green Day.
"I've finished my record, mixed the record and, next year, it will be out on Universal Records," he says in the video below, via Ultimate Classic Rock. "So that's the good news. And while I'm here, I want to thank all of you who supported us while we were touring."
Starr then says that a tour in February and March is possible. He wraps things up by wishing everyone happy holidays as his version of "Blue Christmas" plays in the background before signing off with his signature "Peace and love." Check it out below.
The drummer was elated when news broke that he would be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
"It means recognition. And it means, finally, the four of us are in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame even though we were the biggest pop group in the land. You know that won't look funny in black and white," he told Rolling Stone.
He went on to talk about the prospect of performing and writing music into his 80s.
"I can only look to Tony Bennett and B.B. King. We can go as long as we can go. That's always been the way. If I can hold the sticks and I can stand up, I can do what I love to do. If people are still coming, that's the deal. I don't want to play with myself."
