Hells Bells – Johnson/Sting Collaboration!


AC/DC singer Brian Johnson is among the guests featured on “The Last Ship,” the forthcoming album by Sting.

Due in September, the album is inspired by Sting‘s forthcoming play of the same name and explores the central themes of homecoming and self-discovery, drawing upon his memories of growing up in the shadow of the Swan Hunters Shipyard in Wallsend, England.

Sting has been working on the play for nearly three years, and it will debut on Broadway in New York in 2014. The project tells the story of the demise of the shipbuilding industry in 1980s Newcastle which had, for so long, shaped and overshadowed the city, its development, and its community.
