Sting Drops Sunny, Catchy First Single, “If It’s Love,” from “The Bridge,” Album of All New Songs


This is just what the doctor ordered in the middle of hurricanes, viruses, and wars: something light and catchy from Sting. “If It’s Love” is the first single from his album of all new material, “The Bridge,” coming in November. I love the chorus on this song. You won’t be able to get it out of your head. And what a pleasure to hear Sting’s voice, which only gets richer and more melodic.

PS And just in time for Grammy voting for Best Pop Vocal.
