Home Music Sting Releasing Album of “Duets” Including Mary J. Blige, Herbie Hancock, Eric...

Sting is here, Sting is here. (Sing that to Spring is here…)

Even if everything goes sideways next week, we still have a treat coming on November 27th. Sting is releasing an album of duets including one new song, “September,” the great Zucchero.

His other duet partners include Mary J. Blige, Herbie Hancock, Eric Clapton, Annie Lennox, Sam Moore, Chris Botti, Charles Aznavour, Mylène Farmer, Shaggy, Melody Gardot, and Gashi. The latter two songs “Mama,” with Gashi and “Little Something,” with Melody Gardot are current releases and very hot right now in Europe. Eric Clapton’ joining in on “It’s Probably Me” is one of Sting’s hidden gems. Ditto “Don’t Make Me Wait,” with Shaggy, one of my all time favorite tracks.

Sting recorded “None of Us Are Free” in Los Angeles in 2006 with Sam Moore. It’s from Sam’s “Overnight Sensational” album.

“September” is all new, and you know that Zucchero can sing.
