The Police never really broke up, they just stopped working together — largely because they just couldn’t stand playing together anymore and partially because Sting was itching to establish himself as a serious musician/songwriter on his own terms. Anxious to shed the mantle of pop star, he camped out at Eddy Grant’s studio, picked up the guitar, and raided Wynton Marsalis’ band for his new combo — thereby instantly consigning his solo debut, The Dream of the Blue Turtles, to the critical shorthand of Sting’s jazz record.

A companion album of sorts to 2019’s My Songs, Duets collects 17 duets Sting has recorded over the years. Some of these tracks appeared on soundtracks, some were included on albums by his duet partners, others — including “September,” a song recorded with Zucchero that makes its debut here — trickled out on compilations.

Brand New Day is the sixth solo studio album by British singer-songwriter Sting, released by A&M Records on 27 September 1999. Fueled heavily by the success of the second single, “Desert Rose” (which prominently features popular Algerian Raï singer Cheb Mami), the album peaked at number nine on the Billboard 200 and sold over 3.5 million copies in the United States. Upon its release, Brand New Day was a critical and commercial success, and hailed as the triumphant return for Sting.

They’re his songs, so he can do whatever he wants with them. That seems to be the idea behind My Songs, a 2019 collection where Sting decides to revisit 15 of his most famous songs and tweak them for modern audiences. The inspiration behind the project was an updated version of “Brand New Day,” which he reworked at the end of 2018 not only so it’d have a shiny new arrangement for a New Year’s Eve gig Continue reading “Sting – My Songs (2019) {Deluxe, WEB, CD-Format + Hi-Res}”

Sting scored a moderate comeback success greater than most had imagined possible with 1999’s Brand New Day, reestablishing himself as a viable commercial artist instead of merely settling for “living legend” status. Part of this success was due to “Desert Rose,” featuring vocalist Farhat Bouallagui’s careening cadences that garnered attention, particularly when they were showcased in a car commercial that kicked the album into high commercial gear.

Sting seemed to tire of pop songs sometime early in the 21st century, wandering away from the format after 2003’s well-mannered Sacred Love. Over the next 13 years, he entertained his esoteric interests — he collaborated on a classical album, he rearranged his old tunes for an orchestra, he reunited the Police, he wrote a musical — before he returned to pop/rock with 2016’s 57th & 9th.

After disbanding the Police at the peak of their popularity in 1984, Sting quickly established himself as a viable solo artist, one obsessed with expanding the boundaries of pop music. Sting incorporated heavy elements of jazz, classical, and worldbeat into his music, writing lyrics that were literate and self-consciously meaningful, and he was never afraid to emphasize this fact in the press.
