Sting Announces New Album ‘The Bridge’, Releases New Song ‘If It’s Love’

    Sting has announced a new album: The Bridge arrives November 19 via A&M/Interscope/Cherrytree Records. Today’s announcement comes with the release of the new single ‘If It’s Love’, which you check out below. Scroll down to find the LP’s cover artwork and tracklist, too.

    “These songs are between one place and another, between one state of mind and another, between life and death, between relationships,” Sting said of the new album in a press release. “Between pandemics, and between eras – politically, socially and psychologically, all of us are stuck in the middle of something. We need a bridge.”

    Talking about ‘If It’s Love’, he added: “I’m certainly not the first songwriter to equate falling in or out of love with an incurable sickness, nor will I be the last. ‘If It’s Love’ is my addition to that canon where the tropes of metaphorical symptoms, diagnosis, and downright incapacity are all familiar enough to make each of us smile ruefully.”
