In a video update posted last week, Starr said he's finished his record and it will be out next year on Universal Records. He also thanked his fans for supporting his many 2014 shows with his All Starr Band and alluded to more touring in February and March as well. 

The new LP will be Starr's follow up to Ringo 2012 that was released nearly three years ago. He told Billboard this summer that he'd been working on the set with Toto guitarist and current All-Starr Band member Steve Lukather, along with Peter Frampton, Richard Marx, Dave Stewart, Glen Ballard and Nashville songwriter Gary Nicholson.

"It's all my pals, really. We just get together," Starr he said then. "It's a mixed bag, as my records always are. We have the reggae track and we have the rock track and that's how it is. It's pop, rock, reggae." 

Starr also said he was taking the production reins on his own this time after working with Bruce Sugar on Ringo 2012 and 2010's Y Not.
