Ringo Starr’s 18th studio release, POSTCARDS FROM PARADISE features 11 original tracks and is his first album to include a song written and recorded by Ringo and his current All-Starr Band. POSTCARDS FROM PARADISE was produced by Ringo and recorded at his home studio in Los Angeles and, as always, features friends and family. The album’s guest artists include: Joe Walsh, Benmont Tench, Dave Stewart, Ann Marie Simpson, Richard Marx, Amy Keys, Peter Frampton, Nathan East, and Glen Ballard (among others).


On September 21 Ringo and Genesis Publications released his photography book, PHOTOGRAPH, in wide release. This Spring also saw the release of Ringo’s new album, POSTCARDS FROM PARADISE, by Universal Music Enterprises, and on April 18, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, where he was honored with the Award for Musical Excellence.


In PHOTOGRAPH, Ringo Starr reveals never-before-seen photographs and mementos from his archives, sharing memories of his childhood, The Beatles and beyond. Ringo’s lens captures his Beatles bandmates in pensive and playful moments, portraying them from the point of view of an insider, friend and skilled photographer. In an original manuscript of over 15,000 words, join Ringo growing up amidst the excitement of the emerging Merseybeat scene, as he remembers his first car, drum-kits, girls and bands on his ‘road of happy drumming’. From Pwllheli to Delhi, obscurity to superstardom, his travels are recounted with honesty and hilarity. “I love pictures put together, showing different times of your life,” Ringo said about the book, “At the time, I never thought that there would be a whole book of my photographs.”


PHOTOGRAPH was originally conceived as a limited edition book of only 2,500 copies, which sold out within weeks. Two years later, Ringo Starr and Genesis Publications announced the ‘Open Edition’ – a more accessible and affordable printing of his book released in bookstores September 2015. The author is donating all royalties to the Lotus Foundation. Order the book HERE
