NEW BOOK BY STING

imageThe Bantam Dell Publishing Group announced that it will publish the second book by Sting on October 23, 2007. The book, entitled “LYRICS by Sting“, will be a comprehensive collection of lyrics and commentary written by Sting, spanning his entire career from the early days of The Police through his most recent solo rock album “Sacred Love”. It will be published in hardcover by The Dial Press imprint of the Bantam Dell Publishing Group this fall in the midst of the historic The Police reunion tour that is selling out venues across North America and the world.
“LYRICS by Sting” will include lyrics from well over 100 songs, presented in chronological order by album. Exclusive for this book, Sting has penned brand new commentary about the writing process of his songs, the albums, and his career as a songwriter. He will also write an introduction to the book and it will include photographs from each period of his career.
“Over time, the meaning of a song can continue to reveal itself,” he says. “In putting this book together, I have relished the opportunity to revisit my songs, the times in which they were written and pay tribute to those with whom I’ve shared my creative life.”
