A Special Evening With Sting To Benefit The Grammy Museum
October 18, 2016 at 11:45 AM (PT)
THE GRAMMY MUSEUM will present a special installment of its "An Evening With" series featuring 16-time GRAMMY winner STING on OCTOBER 26th at 8p (PT), moderated by GRAMMY MUSEUM Executive Director BOB SANTELLI. The discussion will center on STING's forthcoming solo album, "57th & 9th," to be released NOVEMBER 11th on A&M/INTERSCOPE RECORDS. The conversation will be followed by an intimate acoustic performance.
His first rock/pop project in over a decade, "57th & 9th" represents a wide range of STING’s musical and songwriting styles, from the "Road Warrior"-style imagery of "Petrol Head," to the anthemic, "50,000" and the guitar-driven first single, "I Can’t Stop Thinking About You." Produced by new manager MARTIN KIERSZENBAUM, the album takes its title from the MANHATTAN street corner that STING crossed each day as he walked into the HELL'S KITCHEN studios to record.
"It's about searching and traveling, the road, that pull of the unknown." STING says. "On this album, we ended up with something that's energetic and noisy, but also thoughtful."
On SEPTEMBER 30th, STING's "The Studio Collection" was released, a solo career-spanning vinyl box set on 180-gram heavyweight vinyl that features all of his seminal A&M solo studio albums brought together for the first time.
