    Sting will release his first full-length of original material since 2003's Sacred Love this fall. The album is called The Last Ship and it will release on September 24.

    The album is inspired by Sting's forthcoming play of the same name and explores the central themes of homecoming and self-discovery, drawing upon his memories of growing up in the shadow of the Swan Hunters Shipyard in Wallsend. His personal reminiscences illuminate universal truths – the complexity of relationships, the passage of time and the importance of family and community – to form an affecting, complex parable for our modern times.

    The play, in which Sting has been creatively immersed for nearly three years, debuts on Broadway in 2014.

    The Last Ship tells the story of the demise of the shipbuilding industry in 1980s Newcastle which had, for so long, shaped and overshadowed the city, its development, and its community.
