Sting will be releasing a new album, My Songs, on May 24, but it won’t feature new material, per se.
My Songs will feature 15 reworked tracks from Sting’s catalog of solo work, as well as his work in The Police.
In a statement on the new album, Sting said, “‘My Songs’ is my life in songs. Some of them reconstructed, some of them refitted, some of them reframed, but all of them with a contemporary focus.”
Sting also said in a new interview with Billboard, “My voice has more interesting overtones than it did when I was 25. It’s a less pure sound, but I think it has this richness to it. The songs change every night when I sing them, and I’m always hearing something I haven’t actually discovered there. It’s discovery within that repetition, too.”
My Songs is available for pre-order on Sting.com
