The wait is over. '57th & 9th', Sting's first rock/pop album in over a decade, is available now...

57th & 9threpresents a wide range of Sting’s musical and songwriting styles, from the ferocious, Road Warrior-style imagery of “Petrol Head,” to the anthemic, “50,000” and the raucous, guitar-driven first single, “I Can’t Stop Thinking About You.” The album was recorded with Sting’s long-time collaborators Dominic Miller (guitar) and Vinnie Colaiuta (drums) and includes contributions from drummer Josh Freese (Nine Inch Nails, Guns n’ Roses), guitarist Lyle Workman and the San Antonio-based Tex-Mex band The Last Bandoleros.

Sting: Who are you calling an ageing rock star?

It's AFL Grand Final day and in the depths of the MCG, Sting is putting his bandmates through their paces. Despite coming straight to the ground after a long-haul flight from his New York home, he’s looking remarkably fit and alert. His tanned face is weathered and lived in, but he looks every inch the rock star with his muscular frame clad in black boots and Balmain jeans, belying the fact he will celebrate his 65th birthday the next day...
