Ringo and His Buddies Have Been Busy

Ringo Starr has been keeping busy during quarantine and we are not mad about it. Last night the 80 year old Beatles member released a new track called “Here’s to the Nights”, which will appear on his forthcoming EP titled Zoom In. Get it? …Zoom in. Quarantine Joke. Anyway, Starr wasn’t alone for this one. The single has a whopping 13 guest features including Paul McCartney (of course), FINNEAS, Joe Walsh, Dave Grohl, Lenny Kravitz, and many more. In a statement Starr said, “This is the kind of song we all want to sing along to, and it was so great how many wonderful musicians joined in.”
Zoom In comes out March 19, 2021. Be sure to listen to “Here’s to the Nights” below.

Justin Timberlake Returns to the Silver Screen in Palmer

Justin Timberlake is making a silver screen comeback in the new movie, Palmer. This marks Timerblake’s first (non-animated) feature film since Wonder Wheel in 2017. Palmer follows former college football star Eddie Palmer (Timberlake) who returns home from a stint in prison and tries to rebuild his life. He strikes up an unlikely friendship with Sam (Ryder Allen), a young boy who experiences trouble with the people in their small town. The film looks like it will tell an emotional and poignant story. Palmer comes out January 29, 2021 on Apple TV+. Check out the trailer below.
