Sting's First Rock/Pop Album in Over a Decade Released
on 180g Vinyl LP!
Sting's 12th solo studio album, 57th & 9th, his first pop/rock project in over a
decade, is a 10-song collection, produced by Martin Kierszenbaum. It represents
a wide range of Sting’s musical and songwriting styles, from the ferocious, Road
Warrior-style imagery of "Petrol Head," to the anthemic, "50,000" and the
raucous, guitar-driven first single, "I Can’t Stop Thinking About You."
The album was recorded with Sting’s long-time collaborators Dominic Miller
(guitar) and Vinnie Colaiuta (drums) and includes contributions from drummer
Josh Freese (Nine Inch Nails, Guns n’ Roses), guitarist Lyle Workman and the San
Antonio-based Tex-Mex band The Last Bandoleros. Riding a wave of inspiration,
57th & 9th came together impulsively, with sessions completed in just a few
The first single "I Can't Stop Thinking About You" shows Sting at his most
propulsive and danceable.
