Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney Cover John Lennon’s Grow Old With Me

Paul McCartney has joined Ringo Starr for a cover of John Lennon’s ‘Grow Old With Me’ for Ringo’s next album ‘What’s My Name’.

‘What’s My Name’ will be the 20th solo album for The Beatles’ drummer.

The Lennon version of ‘Grow Old With Me’ was released on his posthumous album ‘Milk and Honey’, released in 1984. The song was one of the last songs Lennon ever wrote.

John demoed the song during the ‘Double Fantasy’ sessions. During the rush to release ‘Double Fantasy’ it was decided to leave the song off the album with the intent of finishing it for another album in early 1981 but that never happened due to John’s murder in December 1980.

The version that appeared on ‘Milk and Honey’ was a demo recorded in John and Yoko’s bedroom at the Dakota building on a cassette.

Another version of the song appears with an added orchestra on the John Lennon Anthology box set. This version was also added to ‘Working Class Hero: The Definitive Collection’ and ‘Gimme Some Truth’ compilations.

The Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney version of ‘Grow Old With Me’ will be released on ‘What’s My Name’ on 25 October 2019.
