Sting On World Cafe

In the midst of his 57th & 9th tour, Sting sits down in the studio with World Cafe's new full-time host, Talia Schlanger. Hear the full conversation and watch excerpts via VuHaus.
When Sting set out to write his latest record, 57th & 9th, he says he had to "play tricks on [himself] to get the creative juices flowing." He'd step out on to the terrace of his New York apartment in the freezing cold and tell his wife, Trudie Styler, "Don't let me back in until I've finished a lyric." He calls this self-imposed, cold quest "hunting" for the muse, and the fruitful bounty he collected is on full display on 57th & 9th.
