The first single from Sting’s new album, “The Last Ship,” is released today officially on iTunes. “Practical Arrangement” has been on You Tube for about a week (who knew?). The song is also from the coming Broadway show of the same name. It’s a nice lead single release but don’t expect this to be Top 40. This is purely for the enjoyment of hearing a beautiful ballad that will fit like a jigsaw puzzle piece into the whole show. “The Last Ship” is Sting’s first new original work in several years. It’s going to surprise people, because as much as we might want a new rock album, he continues to expand and grow as a composer. Lovely song, and wait til you hear the rest.
