"Wings" is a song by Ringo Starr, originally recorded for and released as a single from the album Ringo the 4th. It was co-written with Vini Poncia in 1977. Starr later re-recorded it, produced by Starr and Bruce Sugar, and released it as a single from his 2012 studio album, Ringo 2012.

"Wings" was re-recorded for Ringo 2012. Starr on the 2012 re-recording: "This is a song I first recorded on Ringo the 4th back when an album meant vinyl. These are different days, and it's one of those songs I always wanted to revisit. I wrote "Wings" with Vinnie Poncia in New York, and he doesn't know I've done this yet. I'm going to surprise Vinnie and send it to him...For the last two years, I've been listening to a lot of reggae, so this album has a reggae feel to it. What can I tell you? I'm a product of my environment. I always loved the sentiment of this song, and I'm glad we finally got it right."

A live version by Ringo Starr & His All-Starr Band, recorded live in Atlanta, was released on the Hurricane Sandy charity compilation Songs After Sandy: Friends of Red Hook for Sandy Relief.

Starr gave filmmakers the chance to do an official promo video for "Wings"; the winning video was chosen by Ringo . Starr called it "a great little video".

Made under an extreme time crunch with a little help from her friends, Vancouver-based filmmaker Jem Garrard’s video for Ringo Starr’s new single, Wings, has won an international competition – chosen by Starr himself to become the official promotional video for the track.

The original version was released as a single in the US on 26 August 1977, backed with "Just a Dream".
