Sting has premiered the first single off his upcoming album 57th & 9th. Titled "I Can't Stop Thinking About You", the song calls back to his earlier days as frontman for The Police. The album is set to be released November 11th via Cherrytree/Interscope Records.
According to Rolling Stone, "Sting named the LP after the New York intersection he crossed traveling to the studio each day. He recorded the album with a tight group of collaborators – including touring members Vinnie Colaiuta (drums) and Dominic Miller (guitar), and Jerry Fuentes and Diego Navaira of Tex-Mex group the Last Bandoleros." In an interview with artists, Rolling Stone explained, "Sting arrived daily without any material and wrote on the spot with the musicians in the studio. "It raises the tension, because everything costs money," he says."
""Most of it was done in an impulsive way," says Kierszenbaum, who produced the LP. "One or two takes. I don't think he's rocked like this since Synchronicity.""
