Former Beatles drummer Ringo Starr has released a new song “Here’s to the Nights,” featuring Paul McCartney, Joe Walsh and several other stars.

“Here’s to the nights we won’t remember/With the friends we won’t forget/May we think of them forever/As the days that were the best,” they sing in chorus.
“Here’s to the Nights” also features instrumental contributions from Toto‘s Steve Lukather, the Heartbreakers‘ Benmont Tench, Bruce Sugar, Nathan East, Charlie Bisharat, and Jacob Braun.
Diane Warren wrote “Here’s to the Nights. “When Diane presented this song to me I loved the sentiment of it,” Ringo said in a statement. “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 Year’s because it feels like a good song to end a tough year on,” he added. “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.”
