Song facts

Paul McCartney wrote the song “Feeling The Sunlight” and gave it to Ringo Starr for his 2023 EP, “Rewind Forward.” Paul also produced the track and recorded most of the instruments at his Hog Hill Studio. He then sent the track to Ringo, who added drums, vocals, and a few other overdubs.

I have to ask about “Feeling The Sunlight” because Paul wrote that one.

Yeah well, I was FaceTime him – we FaceTime each other like twice a month, or if he’s in town, we hang, if I’m in London, we hang. And I said “well, I’m doing do an EP, have you got any song? Write me a song!” And he said okay, and then he sent me this one, the Sunshine song. And he’s all over it, which is great, and when he did send the work track, he’d actually done the drums, so we had to take them off. So I did the drums and the vocals and it was fun.

How did the new Paul song on your album, “Feeling the Sunlight,” come about?

Paul and I were in England, having dinner together [along with our wives]. I told him I was making an EP, and I said, “Why don’t you write me a song?” He wrote the song and put bass on it, he put piano, he put the drums on — and I had to take the drums off. [Laughs.]
