Sting shares his songwriting soul with Gary Barlow

Sting shares his songwriting soul with Gary Barlow as they relive the stories behind the songs. He talks openly about his childhood and how music seeped into the walls of his home. Find out how ‘Roxanne’ became a self funded hit that launched him globally and how he only wants to write songs if he has something worth saying. He reveals he felt he’d initially abandoned his Tyneside community and worked through that by writing his musical ‘The Last Ship’. Discover how his approach to songwriting has changed over the years and how he now values the sound of silence.

Sting is one of the most successful British songwriters in music history. In his group The Police and then as a solo artist he’s won 17 Grammys and sold more than 100 million albums. From ‘Fields Of Gold’ to an ‘Englishman In New York’ he has provided the soundtrack to many of our lives. And the melodies keep coming with the release of his 15th album ‘The Bridge’.
