Sting's last studio album was 2021's The Bridge, led by the single 'If It's Love'.
"These songs are between one place and another, between one state of mind and another, between life and death, between relationships," he said at the time.
"Between pandemics, and between eras – politically, socially and psychologically, all of us are stuck in the middle of something. We need a bridge."
