Sting on Thursday unleashed a driving new single, “Rushing Water,” from his forthcoming album The Bridge.
The Bridge is set for release on November 19 via A&M/Interscope/Cherrytree Records.
The new song, available now on all digital service platforms, is accompanied by a performance-fueled, chiaroscuro music video, directed by Eric Ryan Anderson.
“The song ‘Rushing Water’ is a fitting start to an album that seeks to bridge all of the petty differences that can separate us,” Sting says.
Written by Sting, “Rushing Water” features Dominic Miller and Gavin Brown on guitars, Josh Freese on drums, Martin Kierszenbaum on organ and keyboards, Fred Renaudin on additional synthesizers and Gene Noble on background vocals.
The 17-time Grammy Award winning artist collaborated with Kierszenbaum and Brown for the song’s music.
The Bridge, penned in a year of global pandemic, showcases Sting’s prolific and diverse songwriting prowess, with this new set of songs representing styles and genres explored throughout his inimitable career. Another new song, “If It’s Love” – an infectious ear worm – is also available now on all digital platforms.
Sting’s new weekly web TV series, “On the Bridge” premiered Tuesday and features an intimate glimpse into the musician’s everyday life as he prepares to launch his new album.
