The stars aligned this weekend, as Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr reunited for their first joint recording project since 2010.
Proof of the get together came via social media, with Starr sharing photos of himself hanging out with the other remaining Beatle via social media on Sunday (Feb. 21). The reason for their meetup was the recording of Starr’s newest solo album, a follow-up to 2015’s Postcards From Paradise, on which McCartney will be making a guest appearance.
“Thanks for coming over and playing Great bass. I love you man peace and love,” the drummer tweeted alongside a photo of himself and McCartney palling around in the studio.
Starr also shared a photo of the them posing with Eagle’s guitarist Joe Walsh (who happens to be his brother-in-law) from the same session.
Apparently, the trio has been hanging out outside the studio as well. The two former Beatles and Walsh were reportedly spotted going out for dinner with Tom Hanks and Dave Grohl last week in Santa Monica.
While Starr has revealed he is working on the new album, he has not yet disclosed a release date.
McCartney will be releasing a remastered reissue of his 1989 album Flowers in the Dirt on March 24 and will be performing a trio of shows in Tokyo, Japan this April.
