Starr’s forthcoming album What’s My Name contains a cover of “Grow Old with Me”. It was one of the final songs written by Lennon prior to his death in 1980 and was later released posthumously on 1984’s Milk and Honey. A decade later, McCartney, Starr, and George Harrison flirted with the idea of re-recording the song during the making of The Beatles Anthology. Now, McCartney and Starr have finally done just that.
Their version of “Grow Old With Me” features Starr on drums and vocals, McCartney on bass and backing vocals, and The Eagles’ Joe Walsh on guitar. Starr said he was motivated to record the song after meeting with Jack Douglas, who produced John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s Double Fantasy.
