Sting is back with his 14th studio album “The Bridge”. So fans can look forward to the first studio album of the Briton since “My Songs” (2019). With “Wenn Es Liebe ist” and “rauschendes Wasser”, the legendary pop singer is already delivering two impressive harbingers to the new project.

In total, the album contains 14 songs, which thematically tell about the bridging of two worlds. Sting himself says: “These songs are between one place and another, between one state of mind and the other, between life and death, between relationships. Between pandemics and between epochs – political, social and psychological – we are all in the middle of something. We need a bridge.”

It was a film with Maurice Chevalier that is said to have inspired Sting to do the whistling on his feelgood song If It’s Love: the same film seems to have inspired the ambiance of this whole album. In Rouben Mamoulian’s Love Me Tonight (1932), like a contagious disease, the song Isn’t It Romantic passes from ‘voice to voice’, eventually linking the two protagonists of the film, played by ‘Momo’ and Jeannette MacDonald. It is this image of music as a bridge (between people or between two phases of a life) that Sting is reflecting on in his 15th studio album. Conceived during the Covid19 pandemic, the album unveils portraits of characters going through more or less painful ordeals: from a betrayed husband in Loving You to a man caught between life and death in The Bells Of St. Thomas. With kindness and empathy, Sting builds bridges towards a liberating future. With his usual rich palette—jazz (The Bells Of St. Thomas), pop rock (Rushing Water, which will delight Police nostalgics) or folk (The Bridge, The Hills On The Border)—the Brit once again reveals his incomparable sense of melody through this series of “bridges over troubled waters” that defy adversity. – Nicolas Magenham
