Ringo Starr, who will soon be honored alongside the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’s Class of 2015, has completed his next record. He broke the news in a video update to his fans, which is embedded above.

“I’ve finished my record, mixed the record and, next year, it will be out on Universal Records,” he says. He then hints that the All-Starr Band may be touring in February and March, and wishes everybody a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year before signing off with his customary, “Peace and love.” In the background, his 1999 version of ‘Blue Christmas’ plays.

The as-yet unnamed disc will be Starr’s 18th studio record, and ninth since 1992. His most recent, ‘Ringo 2012,’ was released in January 2012.

Earlier this month, Starr, along with Stevie Ray Vaughan, Joan Jett and Lou Reed, was elected into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He is the last of the Beatles to be inducted for their solo careers. “I think it’s good,” he said. “I didn’t know that George and John were in it. I’m not keeping up with it all the time. It means recognition. And it means, finally, the four of us are in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, even though we were the biggest pop group in the land, though now it all looks funny in black and white.”

The induction ceremony will take place April 18.
