The two surviving members of the Beatles have recorded music together for the first time in seven years.

Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr released pictures of themselves in Starr’s home studio over the weekend. McCartney will be making a guest appearance on Starr’s latest record, a follow-up to 2015’s Postcards from Paradise.

Starr took to Twitter to thank his former bandmate for joining him in the studio. “Thanks for coming over man and playing great bass,” Starr wrote. “I love you man – peace and love.”

Also joining the former Beatles in the studio was Eagles guitarist Joe Walsh, who Starr said had “come out to play”.

Bruce Sugar, who is producing Starr’s latest album, posted a photo of him with McCartney and Starr on Facebook, with the caption: “Magical day in the studio today with these two.”

It is the first time since 2010 that the pair have collaborated to make music, when McCartney played bass on Starr’s track Peace Dream, and contributed his vocals to Walk With You.

Starr confirmed he was working on a new record last year, but said a release date was still not scheduled.
