Ringo Starr's children's book to include previously unheard version of 'Octopus's Garden'

Wednesday, August 28, 2013

A previously unheard version of Ringo Starr singing 'Octopus's Garden' will be released along with a children's book of the same title this October. Earlier this year, Starr gave permission to publishing house Simon & Schuster to turn the famous Beatles' track into a picture book and, according to a post on his official Facebook account, it will come with a previously unreleased recording of the song, too.

Linking to an image of artwork from the book, a message said: "Here's an exclusive look at the artwork from the forthcoming picture book of Octopus's Garden – publishing this October, the song will be brought to life by illustrator Ben Cort and published with a CD of Ringo reading the story and an original, previously unheard recording of the song by Ringo."
