As part of the promotion for the release of his upcoming EP Crooked Boy, Starr stopped by Amoeba Records in Hollywood on April 18 with Linda Perry. The four-song collection – "February Sky," "Adeline," "Gonna Need Someone," and "Crooked Boy" – was written and produced by the Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee and in turn, she sent them to Starr for drumming and vocal contribution.

"Linda put the whole thing together," Starr explained when asked how the collaboration came together. "During the pandemic, I just decided to make EPs. I was determined to work with people I hadn't worked with before and Linda was one of them, a great songwriter." Perry in turn acknowledged Starr's influence early in her life. "I was brought up with this incredible music of the Beatles, watching Ringo and him always being my favorite, 'cause I thought he was the most charming and funniest one."

Perry also came up with the image for the album, a photo taken in February 1964 in Miami Beach by photographer Harry Benson. Benson had been traveling with the Beatles on that fateful trip to America and snapped Starr in his swim trunks during the band's trip there for the Ed Sullivan broadcast from the Deauville Hotel.

Starr did let slip during the Amoeba Records appearance that he's in the middle of making another record, "a 10-tracker," but quickly got back to the record at hand. In honor of Record Store Day the Crooked Boy EP will be available in a 2,000-only pressing on black and white marble vinyl.

Crooked Boy will be released digitally on April 26. Black vinyl and CD formats will be available May 31.
