Sting is working overtime to finish 57th & 9th (named after the intersection he crosses to get to the studio every day), which has him returning to the guitar-driven rock music he hasn't made in decades. "It's not a lute album," he says with a smile, a reference to 2006's Songs From the Labyrinth. "It's rockier than anything I've done in a while. This record is a sort of omnibus of everything that I do, but the flagship seems to be this energetic thing. I'm very happy to put up the mast and see how it goes." full story here... Inside Sting's First Rock Album in Decades » Sting gets a lot of flak around these parts (some of it deserved, some of it ridiculous), but the man knows his way around a melody and has written some great songs through the years. I'm looking forward to hearing what a "rockier" Sting has to offer these days.
