There’s a little black spot on the Sun today. It’s the same old thing as yesterday. Wow, it has been a minute since Sting has released a new rock album. Do you remember “King of Pain.” One of my favorites, but there are so many.
Inside Sting’s First Rock Album in Decades – Rolling Stone
It’s a perfect Saturday morning, but Sting, unshaven and scruffy, is lying on a couch in a darkened New York studio, taking a nap before starting work for the day.
He’s still recovering from playing New York’s Jones Beach Theater last night, the third date of his co-headlining summer tour with Peter Gabriel. “That was a workout,” he says.
“I’ve been up since 5:30. I’m the son of a milkman.” Sting is working overtime to finish 57th & 9th (named after the intersection he crosses to get to the studio every day), which has him returning to the guitar-driven rock music he hasn’t made in decades.
“It’s not a lute album,” he says with a smile, a reference to 2006’s Songs From the Labyrinth. “It’s rockier than anything I’ve done in a while. This record is a sort of omnibus of everything that I do, but the flagship seems to be this energetic thing. I’m very happy to put up the mast and see how it goes.”
