Sting to Release 'The Last Ship' on Sept. 24
|Jun 06 2013|
Sting has announced he'll release an album consisting of all-new music entitled The Last Ship on September 24 via Cherrytree/Interscope/A&M. The Grammy-winning singer-songwriter has been working on a new musical for the past three years, also entitled The Last Ship. Set in Wallsend, England, where the real life Gordon Sumner grew up, the story is based on a homecoming framed around the declining shipbuilding business. Producers hope to bring the show to Broadway in 2014. The Last Ship is Sting's first album of new material since 2003's Sacred Love and contains several songs used in the musical, in addition to titles that did not make the play. Sting is currently in the midst of his Back to Bass 2013 tour with his next performances scheduled at the Ravinia Festival in Chicago, IL June 7-8. A full list of his tour dates is available here.
