Sting to release new 'The Last Ship' album in fall
UPI News Service, 06/05/2013
Sting's publicist says the British singer-songwriter is to release "The Last Ship," his first new album since 2003's "Sacred Love," Sept. 24.
The CD will feature several songs to be used in his upcoming Broadway musical of the same name, as well as a few tunes Sting penned for but decided not to include in his stage show, The New York Times said Wednesday.
Tentatively scheduled to open on the Great White Way next year with director Joe Mantello at the helm, the musical is set in a shipyard in Wallsend, England, near where Sting grew up, the Times said.
