Information:

As one of the world’s most distinctive solo artists, Sting has earned an additional 10 Grammy Awards, two Brits, a Golden Globe, an Emmy, three Oscar nominations, a TONY nomination, Billboard Magazine’s Century Award, and MusiCares 2004 Person of the Year. Also a member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame, in December 2014 he received the Kennedy Center Honors, one of the most prestigious cultural prizes in the United States. Throughout his enduring career, he has sold close to 100 million albums from his combined work with The Police and as a solo artist. Sting’s twelfth solo studio album, 57th & 9th, his first pop/rock project in over a decade.

The ten-song collection represents a wide range of Sting’s musical and songwriting styles, from the ferocious, Road Warrior-style imagery of “Petrol Head” to the classic folk narrative “Pretty Young Soldier.” The first single, “I Can't Stop Thinking About You,” shows Sting at his most propulsive and danceable, evidence of the influence his music continues to have on pop today. The album, produced Martin Kierszenbaum, takes its title from the Manhattan street corner that the musician would cross each day as he walked to the studios in Hell’s Kitchen where the recordings were done. Sting notes that if there’s a theme to be found in the lyrics of 57th & 9th, it’s the idea of travel and motion, most apparent in the autobiographical “Heading South On The Great North Road” and in “Inshallah,” an account of the global refugee crisis from a humanitarian point of view.
