Sting is the latest artist to appear on NPR’s Tiny Desk (Home) Concert series, performing a three-song set from a lounge in New York City.
Sting opened with a duet with Beninese artist Shirazee, performing their hybrid “Englishman/African in New York.” Sting, who is currently recording a new album, transitioned into an acoustic rendition of his 1993 hit “If I Ever Lose My Faith in You” and concluded with “Sister Moon,” a cut off of 1987’s Nothing Like the Sun.
Sting just released his latest LP, Duets, containing collaborations over the past decades. The album features artists such as Algerian Raï singer-songwriter Cheb Mami, Shaggy, Eric Clapton, Mary J. Blige, Julio Iglesias, and jazz singer Melody Gardot. Duets is available now and can be purchased- here.
