The term 'living legend' is frequently bandied about in the world of entertainment, often without the merit it deserves. However, if there's one figure in pop music who warrants this epithet, it's undeniably Ringo Starr. The ex-Beatle rolled out the most recent line-up of his All-Starr band at the stunning Terrace Theater, Long Beach Performing Arts Center in Long Beach, California to inaugurate his 2023 tour.
Leading up to the album, Hay shared a number of singles including the “joyful rootsy rocker” (Forbes) “A Man Without A Name,” the “cheery” (Rock Cellar Magazine) “Love Is Everywhere,” and the “orch-pop” (BrooklynVegan) title track which features a guest appearance from Ringo Starr on drums.
Today, Colin Hay shared “Love Is Everywhere,” the latest single from his upcoming album Now And The Evermore, out on March 18, 2022 via Lazy Eye/Compass Records. The sunny track mixes rootsy guitars and gospel harmonies as it reminds us there’s always joy and gratitude to be found if we’re willing to seek it out.
“Love Is Everywhere” follows the release of the title track, which features a guest appearance from Ringo Starr on drums.

It took 26 months for the second “annual” BeachLife Festival to transpire, September 10-12, but the Covid-19-includes delay only strengthened the shindig’s vision and spirit to deliver a celebratory tip of the cap to the Los Angeles South Bay seaside’s musical and lifestyle identity. The weekend’s music exemplified many genres, but there was a decidedly distinct number of post-punk rock and alt-pop bands who first blazed their ways to glory in the late ‘80s/early ‘90s.
This past year was a long year for all of us. No restaurants, movie theaters, parties or concerts. The lockdown came just as Colin Hay was preparing to leave for what he considered his most comprehensive North American tour ever. A few dates were played before venues were sealed shut. Now, as the world slowly and surely resumes some semblance of normalcy, Hay is heading out on the road for real.
If singer-songwriter Colin Hay, (most famous as the frontman for Australian 80s hitmakers Men at Work) ever has to give up music, he could easily have a career in standup comedy. The feisty veteran pop star displayed his devilish wit with a Scottish twist at his opening concert on his latest solo tour. The sold-out show at the historic Lobero Theatre in Santa Barbara on February 27th featured songs from the prolific songwriters' long and storied career.
