But it isn’t just McCartney that Starr has recruited, assembling a dream lineup that will surely have dads worldwide jamming the song while sitting on their porch rocking chairs and sipping beers: the Eagles’ Joe Walsh, Toto’s Steve Lukather, and Edgar Winter.
Premiered on Rolling Stone, “We’re on the Road Again” is filled with concise, dad-ready axioms that discuss “goofing off on the tour bus and ‘[kicking] ass’ onstage”: “We play really tight / We play really loud / We’re gonna kick ass / We pumped up the crowd.”
The song will appear on Starr’s 19th solo LP, Give More Love, which is set to release on Sept. 15. Along with a second appearance by McCartney on the track “Show Me the Way,” other album guests include Peter Frampton, Richard Marx, Glen Ballard, and the Eagles’ Timothy B. Schmit.
The last time Starr and McCartney recorded together was on Starr’s 16th studio album, Y Not, dueting on the track “Walk With You.” McCartney also provided bass on the song “Peace Dream.”
