Sting revealed the cover and track listing for his new album My Songs, which contains “re-imagined” versions of some of his favorite Police and solo compositions. It’s set for release on May 24 in standard and deluxe versions.
He previously explained how the idea came to him after reworking his song “Brand New Day.” In a new interview with Billboard, he said, “I'm constantly tinkering and I'm always wanting to make the songs as contemporary as they can possible be, because I think they are good songs. Sometimes songs are identified by the technology they were recorded with – recording techniques, the sound of synthesizers or the drum sound. They all date a song, so we just want to re-contemporize the stuff."
He said the new album made use of both old and new recordings, with arrangements based on how the music had evolved during live performances over the years.
“My voice has more interesting overtones than it did when I was 25," he noted. "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."
