Sting launches interactive website as visual companion piece to upcoming ‘Duets’ album – Music News

The 69-year-old musician will release his star-studded LP, which features his iconic collaborations with the likes of Mary J. Blige, Herbie Hancock, Eric Clapton, Annie Lennox, and Shaggy, on March 19.

And the site expands on every detail behind each track with photo-visual content and new video commentary from Sting.

Fans across the globe can view the content in English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Polish and Japanese.
The former Police star’s musical journey is documented from 1992 to now.

‘My Funny Valentine’, the theme song for the 2005 Japanese movie ‘Ashura’, featuring Herbie Hancock is set to drop worldwide on March 11.

What’s more, Sting is also releasing a special digital single of his new duet with African artist, Shirazee, ‘Englishman/African in New York’.”

It comes after the singer-songwriter turned Sting’s 1988 hit ‘Englishman in New York’ into ‘Africa in New York’, with the blessing of the ‘Shape of My Heart’ hitmaker.

He said previously: “He [Sting] loves it. He said it made him smile in a time where he felt that’s what we need. He felt like it was a very special version. It’s just very mind-boggling to me to go from: discovering it as a kid and now being able to be in a conversation with him [Sting] about it. It’s just incredible. And I’m glad people are actually reacting the same to the record. It’s pretty cool if you ask me.”
