The music of Sting was a major interest to me back in the late 1990’s. Not because of anything that he had done at the time, just because it was a phase I was going through.
I don’t listen to his stuff as frequently as I used to, because of that same thing of going through phases. the man’s music is still something I consider good and enjoyable to hear.
This has been posted for a while, but I only came across it recently, so you can imagine my excitement at listening to it. I know Stevie and Sting have done stuff before like Brand New Day, but that was fairly tame stuff compared to the wealth of work both have produced in their years in the industry.
This however did not disappoint and it was very magnanimous of Sting to let Stevie do lead vocals on such a special song. The conscious lyrics are beautiful and profound and Stevie pays them the respect they are due. A superb collaboration. Enjoy.
