Sting Drops New Single “If It’s Love”
As part of the buildup to release, Sting has dropped his first single from the album, an upbeat song called “If It’s Love”. Check it out here:
“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,” Sting said of the song. “’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.”
The Bridge is Sting’s pandemic album. He said of the album: “These songs are between one place and another, between one state of mind and another, between life and death, between relationships. Between pandemics, and between eras – politically, socially and psychologically, all of us are stuck in the middle of something. We need a bridge.”
What an interesting time to live in. The pandemic has been so hard, but it has been a welcome thing to see artists take from the bad and try to create something good.
