Ringo Announces WINGS Music Video Winner

Today Ringo announced the winner of the competition to make the official music video for "Wings," the first single from his current CD, Ringo 2012 (Hip-O/Ume). The contest was launched in January with Genero.tv, giving filmmakers the opportunity to put their work directly in front of one of the world's most influential artists and Universal Music Enterprises, one of the industry's leading record labels.

In a video statement, which can be seen on his website www.ringostarr.com, Ringo said, "I want to congratulate everyone who participated in the Wings video contest. There were so many good one's it was really hard to choose but in the end you have to choose just one so in this competition the winner is Jem Gerard. What a great little video that was for Wings, my song on my CD," Ringo also gave a shout out to a few others whose video's were also really great including, "Menelaos Pab, Chris Martin and Jake Hanne, they were good too."

Ringo's new album, titled simply Ringo 2012 and produced by Ringo, was recorded in Los Angeles and mixed in England by Ringo and Bruce Sugar. Ringo 2012 is his second album on Hip-O/UMe, and was released on January 31 in the United States and January 30 Internationally. Of the 9 tracks, two are covers, "Think It Over" and "Rock Island Line," and two are new versions of his own songs, "Wings" and "Step Lightly."

Ringo and his All Starr Band can be seen on tour this summer, which launches June 15, 2012 from Fallsview Casino in Niagara Falls, Ontario, continuing on with stops in New York, Atlanta, and Nashville, where Starr will celebrate his birthday with Peace & Love on July 7.
