Sting on “The Promise”

November 21st, 2018

I have question for Simon Nick and Roger for Arcadia. How did you guys get Sting to sing background vocals on your album Arcadia. Robert

“Simon and Nick had set up residence in Paris to make the Arcadia album and many artists came through to perform. It so happened that Sting was coming to play a show, which they attended, and thought it would be interesting to have him come and sing on the album. They liked the sound of Simon and Sting’s voice together on the Band Aid single, and wanted to see what would come of putting them together again. Sting was incredibly gracious about it, and his contribution is actually one of their favorite moments on the record. Katy”
