180 Gram Vinyl Record
Reissued separately from a 180-gram vinyl limited edition box set
Includes original jacket artwork
In advance of Sting‘s recently announced studio album, 57th & 9th, the ex-Police frontman presents a career-spanning box set called Sting: The Studio Collection that gathers together 180-gram vinyl editions of eight of his solo albums. The albums are also for sale individually. The package spans from the singer/songwriter's 1985 solo debut, The Dream of the Blue Turtles, through the 2013 companion album to his stage musical, The Last Ship.
The Studio Collection also features 1987's ...Nothing Like the Sun, 1991's The Soul Cages, 1993's Ten Summoner's Tales, 1996's Mercury Falling, 1999's Brand New Day and 2003's Sacred Love. The versions of ...Nothing Like the Sun, Brand New Day and Sacred Love included in the box set are spread across two LPs, while the latter two albums have never before been available on vinyl.
Reeling from the loss of his parents, Sting constructed The Soul Cages as a hushed mediation on mortality, loss, grief, and father/son relationships. The set is packaged in an exact replica of the original artwork, on 180-gram heavyweight vinyl. The new vinyl master was cut at the legendary Abbey Road Studios to ensure exceptional audio quality.
