Looks like Sting is exploring his rockier side again for the first time in several years on his new album. The Police legend and mega-successful solo artist is finishing up work on his next album ’57th & 9th’, on which we will hear much more guitars on.
In fact, his manager Martin Kierszenbaum says his new material hasn’t sounded this hard since this Police classic:
As for my favorite Sting tune, I have to go with the title track off of ‘The Soul Cages’:
This one’s another winner for me.
How about you? What’s your favorite tune from the Sting solo catalog?
Hi, I'm Pete Rizzo, early morning elixir for your weekends.
I love music and I love talking about it. I grew up listening to bands like Rush (best band on the planet!), Van Halen (Diamond Dave all the way), AC/DC (Bon rules!) and Genesis (the Gabriel years). But my true love is progressive rock and heavy metal. The louder, crunchier, more bombastic and self-indulgent, the better!
When I’m not on the air, I’m either training in martial arts, deciding which tattoo I should get next, reading a good book (I still enjoy turning actual pages), or my wife and I are planning our next big travel excursion.
I’m on every Saturday and Sunday morning. You can also follow me on on Twitter @PeteRizzoWBAB. I’d love to hear from you.
