This November, Sting is releasing his first honest-to-god pop album in 13 years. And last night, as Billboard reports, he previewed it in a brief set at NYC’s Playstation Theater after the inaugural D&AD Impact Awards at NY Advertising Week. He played lead single “I Can’t Stop Thinking About You” and “50,000” and also debuted a new rocker called “Petrol Head.” “Sometimes my role is not to write about myself but to step into someone else’s shoes,” he said before launching into the performance. “This one’s about a truck driver who’s obsessed with sex and religion. Only one of those things applies to me.” Watch below.
Sting is also performing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon tonight.
