Sting – 57th & 9th

Sting is such a New Yorker now. He had a wonderful Broadway play that we saw, The Last Ship. It’s great to see him honoring New York City and its fantastic recording studios.

Prince, David Bowie, climate change and the refugee crisis spark Sting’s first record in 17 years. “57th & 9th,” named after the intersection the 64-year-old crosses every day to get to the studio, was recorded in just four months and features his touring drummer Vinnie Colaiuta and guitarist Dominic Miller, and Jerry Fuentes and Diego Navaira of the Tex Mex band the Last Bandoleros. Metro meets The Police’s former frontman at Cherrytree Music Company in Beverly Hills to chat about the ever-changing musicscape, social issues and the cold tingle he got while penning one of the songs for his new album, which drops on November 11.
