Sting (echte naam Gordon Summer) begint zijn zangcarriëre in de band The Police die tussen 1978 en 1986 enorm populair is. In '85 begint hij een solocarriëre en dat pakt goed uit want hij scoort enorme hits als Russians, Love Is The Seventh Wave, Englishman In New York. Fragile en All This Time. Ook in de jaren daarna scoort hij hit maar minder succesvol. Wel scoort hij samen met Bryan Adams en Rod Stewart een top 3-hit met All For Love. In 2003 heeft hij samen met Craig David een enorme hit met de single Rise And Fall. Hierna scoort Sting geen hits meer maar blijft wel albums maken.

Zijn laatste album 57th And 9th verscheen in 2016.

Songtekst

Free, free, set them free
Free, free, set them free
Free, free, set them free

If you need somebody
Call my name
If you want someone
You can do the same
If you want to keep something precious
You got to lock it up and throw away the key
If you want to hold onto your possession
Don't even think about me

If you love somebody
If you love someone
If you love somebody
If you love someone, set them free
Set them free
Set them free
Set them free

If it's a mirror you want
Just look into my eyes
Or a whipping boy
Someone to despise
Or a prisoner in the dark
Tied up in chains you just can't see
Or a beast in a gilded cage
That's all some people ever want to be

If you love somebody
If you love someone
If you love somebody
If you love someone, set them free
Set them free
Set them free
Set them free

You can't control an independent heart
Can't tear the one you love apart
Forever conditioned to believe that we can't live
We can't live here and be happy with less
So many riches
So many souls
With everything we see that we want to possess

If you need somebody
Call my name
If you want someone
You can do the same
If you want to keep something precious
You got to lock it up and throw away the key
You want to hold onto your possession
Don't even think about me

If you love somebody
If you love someone
If you love somebody
If you love someone, set them free
Set them free
Set them free
Set them free
Set them free
