About this album

Sacred Love is the seventh studio album by Sting. The album was released on 30 September 2003. The album featured racier beats and experiments collaborating with hip-hop artist Mary J. Blige and sitar player Anoushka Shankar. Some songs like “Inside” and “Dead Man’s Rope” were well received; and Sting had experimented with new sounds, in particular the more rock-influenced “This War”.

Sting adapted the first quatrain of William Blake’s Auguries of Innocence for the first four sung lines of “Send Your Love”.

The music also bears huge relevance to Sting’s autobiography Broken Music.

Sting’s collaboration with Blige, “Whenever I Say Your Name”, won the Grammy Award for Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals at the 46th Grammy Awards in 2004.

    This album is full of personal Sting favourites...every song tells a different story and has a different vibe to it, and "Book of my Life" has the greatest lyrics EVER.

    This album has more than its fair share of great tracks. I think in time it will be looked upon as one of the more underrated Sting albums (along with Mercury Falling).
