Description: Composer, singer, author, actor, activist—Sting was the lead singer and bassist for the multi-Grammy Award winning band, The Police, before embarking on a prolific solo career spanning more than two decades. This fall, the 16-time Grammy® winner will release The Last Ship, a new album inspired by the story of his Broadway-bound play of the same name.
The album—his first of original material since 2003—draws upon Sting's childhood memories from the shipbuilding town in which he was born and raised. Sting recently told Rolling Stone, "I wanted the music to reflect the traditional music of the northeast of England where I grew up, as well as tipping my hat to the great music of the theatrical tradition – Rodgers and Hammerstein, Lerner and Loewe, Brecht and Weill." Sting discusses his new project and its inspirations with Rolling Stone contributing editor Anthony DeCurtis.
