Ringo Starr Announces New Single ‘February Sky’ From Upcoming EP ‘Crooked Boy’

Beatles legend Ringo Starr has announced a new single, “February Sky,” from his upcoming EP, Crooked Boy.

Crooked Boy will be Starr’s fourth consecutive EP and includes four original tracks – “February Sky,” “Gonna Need Someone,” “Adeline,” and “Crooked Boy.” All songs were written and produced by Linda Perry for Starr to make his own, adding vocals and playing drums.

The EP will be released on a limited-edition marble vinyl on Record Store Day on April 20. On April 26, it will be released digitally. Fans can pre-order the black vinyl and CD now, releasing on May 31.

After previously collaborating on two songs that appeared on earlier Ringo EPs, Linda approached Ringo and asked if she could produce an entire EP. That was the origin of Crooked Boy.

“Linda made me a great EP – she produced it in her studio and then sent me the tracks and I added the drumming and my vocals,” Ringo said. “‘February Sky’ is great – very moody – but since Linda wrote these specifically for me – it of course has to have a positive peace & love element.”

February Sky will be available to stream and download Friday, April 12 on all platforms; fans can pre-save the track now at https://recordstoreday.com/SpecialRelease/17624. A video that includes never seen clips from Ringo’s archives was also created.

Fans can get a first listen to the entire EP at Amoeba Music Hollywood on April 18. Amoeba will have an exclusive “February Sky” red vinyl 7″ single available for sale at this event in limited quantities. Details for the playback and single are available at https://www.amoeba.com/live-shows/upcoming/detail-2854/.

Ringo will be taking his All Starr Band back on the road for 12 shows this Spring with additional dates in the Fall coming soon.
