New Sting! I don’t mean to “Police” his sound but…is there a subtle U2 undercurrent to this song? I dig it though. Good to have the old dog back.
Cool lyrics as well…
“I remember the story of Jonah
He was trapped in the belly of a whale
How many times must he succeed?
How many times must he fail?”
Rushing Water is the first single from his forthcoming album The Bridge expected for release on November 19, 2021.
Sting had a couple of moments in the Steve Martin/Martin Short show Only Murders in the Building. I appreciated how Martin Short put some Ed Grimley English on “Winnie, don’t stand so close to Sting…”
.@OfficialSting, if you're reading this, I'm a huge fan (just like Winnie). And I'm sorry you had to engage in conversation with Oliver. He loves elevator small-talk. 🙄 #OnlyMurdersOnHulu pic.twitter.com/EdyAFiEkps

An inspired line and solid delivery. Team Martin Short!
