Iconic singer-songwriter Sting returns with his hotly anticipated twelfth solo studio album, ’57th & 9th!’
The album, produced by Martin Kierszenbaum, takes its title from the Manhattan street corner that Sting crossed each day as he walked to the studios in Hell’s Kitchen where the recordings were done.
Sting notes that if there’s a theme in the lyrics of ’57th & 9th,’ it’s the idea of travel and motion, most apparent in the autobiographical “Heading South On The Great North Road” and in “Inshallah,” a first-person account of the global refugee crisis, written from a humanitarian point of view.
“It’s about searching and traveling, the road, that pull of the unknown.” he says. “On this album, we ended up with something that’s energetic and noisy, but also thoughtful.”
