Ringo: More comments on "Abby Road" anniversary release - plus a new solo album on the way

Ringo Starr made some additional comments about the upcoming Abbey Road 50th anniversary release in a recent interview with the New York Daily News. Plus, he mentioned he has a new solo album recorded and nearly ready for release.

Starr is in the midst of a year of milestones — it’s also the 50th birthday of the beloved Beatles album “Abbey Road" on Sept. 26. 
“I just love Side Two. … ‘Bathroom Window’ and ‘Polythene Pam’ are all like short bits because they hadn’t finished the songs, really,” Starr said. “The other thing I’m really always proud of is there was a bit of tension. Not all the time, not as much as people like to think, but if you counted it in, everybody gave their all. Nobody said, ‘Oh, well, not my song.’ Nobody held back. You did your best every take.” 
In addition to touring, Starr has several projects on the horizon. His latest photography book, “Another Day in the Life," hits shelves Sept. 24, and he has a new album on the way as well. 
“I’ve got the album finished, and we’re trying to decide a cover,” Starr said.
