Sting Shows Support For Ukraine
The song which features on his 1985 solo album The Dream Of The Blue Turtles, was inspired by the Cold War between the US and Russia and eschews mutually assured destruction.
“I’ve only rarely sung this song in the many years since it was written, because I never thought it would be relevant again”, the singer said. “But in the light of one man’s bloody and woefully misguided decision to invade a peaceful, unthreatening neighbor, the song is, once again, a plea for our common humanity”, Sting can be heard saying in the music video.
He also added, “For the brave Ukrainians fighting against this brutal tyranny and also the many Russians who are protesting this outrage despite the threat of arrest and imprisonment: We, all of us, love our children. Stop the war”.
On top of this, Sting also sold his entire songwriting catalogue to Universal Music Group for £184 million. More on this here.
