World Cafe Playlist for 01/28/2022

Sting joins host Raina Douris

Sting has a new album, called The Bridge, and the idea of water flows throughout the record – From the waters near his hometown in England, to biblical waters of cleansing and forgiveness. And as we’ll learn on the next World Cafe, the power of water extends to his daily life – Sting starts each morning by jumping into a cold pool! He shares about that ritual, his ongoing Las Vegas residency, as well as the latest stage of his career, which sees him revisiting songs from his Police days. Hear host Raina Douris’ conversation with Sting.
