Sting and his Tale: For more than 30 years, every little thing this singer/songwriter does has been magic, and he's not done yet. Chatting to Sting is like talking to a wise old owl, albeit one that's morphed from a proud cockerel who once strutted his colourful plumage and ruffled feathers around the globe. Heaven knows how he manages to sound casually philosophical and self-deprecating at the same time; it's quite a feat considering he made his name as the spiky haired, egocentric British frontman of The Police (alongside Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers) - one of the biggest bands of the early '80s. Add a string of hugely successful solo albums after the trio's tumultuous split in 1984, at the peak of their popularity, and his celebrity was cemented. But it was his habit of rubbing shoulders with the likes of Sir Bob Geldof and Bono, and entree into environmentalism long before the rest of us jumped on the green bandwagon, that sold us the idea he was more than some flash-in-the-pan rock god...

In advance of his new holiday album, "If On a Winter's Night," Sting dropped by the Journal's offices today. The singer wore a gray Dries Van Noten suit with heavy brown boots and a thick beard -- a kind of Grizzly Adams meets Manhattan look. "I have no idea what season we're in," he said, addressing the temperate weather outside. "I tell you, it's serious. We're losing winter..."
