The Bridge was released in November 2021 as Sting’s 15th studio set in his own name, and was a Top 10 entry across much of Europe. A deluxe edition followed last June. “Water, water everywhere,” wrote Emma Harrison in Clash Music. “Written during lockdown amidst the global pandemic, Sting ruminates on a myriad of concepts and themes centred around water which includes the impact of lockdown, love, loss, separation, disruption and political turmoil through his classic evergreen storytelling style.

The Bridge is so much more than a clever concept album,” the review continued, “there are links between each of the songs and the prolific musician takes to the theme like a duck to water (sorry!) and whilst water is the common denominator, it is really about connection – connection between people, life and death and more.”

Sting, a keen supporter of his home town Premiership soccer team Newcastle United, was back home to play a special show at the city’s Live Theatre last Thursday (20) to mark the Tyneside venue’s 50th birthday. Vocal support on some songs came from fellow Geordie and actor-singer Jimmy Nail. The new dates on the My Songs tour begin in Bilbao on June 1, with UK dates starting in Bedford on June 24.
