The Beatles bandmates Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney announced earlier this year they would be reuniting up for a special tribute to John Lennon - and we've just had our first taste of their project!

The duo has released a cover of the late singer's 1980 hit 'Grow Old With Me', featuring Ringo on lead vocals, Paul on bass and backing vocals and The Eagles legend Joe Walsh on guitar.⠀⁣

The song - which will feature on Ringo's forthcoming album What’s My Name? - was originally written by John and was one of the final songs he wrote in his life.

In announcing the album, Ringo said reimagining 'Grow Old With Me' came about after a chance encounter with John and Yoko Ono's Double Fantasy producer Jack Douglas.

"Jack asked if I ever heard The Bermuda Tapes, John's demos from that time," Ringo said.

"And I had never heard all this. The idea that John was talking about me in that time before he died, well, I’m an emotional person. And I just loved this song. I sang it the best that I could.

"I do well up when I think of John this deeply. And I’ve done my best. We’ve done our best," he admitted.

"The other good thing is that I really wanted Paul to play on it, and he said yes. Paul came over and he played bass and sings a little bit on this with me. So John's on it in a way. I'm on it and Paul's on it.

"It's not a publicity stunt. This is just what I wanted. And the strings that Jack arranged for this track, if you really listen, they do one line from 'Here Comes The Sun.' So in a way, it’s the four of us."
