03.27.12 Sting's "Deep In The Meadow (Lullaby)" for The Hunger Games: Songs From District 12 And Beyond is available NOW!


The track is available as a free download for fans that purchase the album (www.thehungergamesmovie.com/lullaby) and can also be purchased as a single.

"Lullaby" is a centerpiece of The Hunger Games, and Sting delivers a powerful and poetic rendition of the song, which was produced by T-Bone Burnett. The pair last collaborated on 2003's "You Will Be My Ain' True Love" for the film, Cold Mountain. The song was subsequently nominated for an Academy Award, a Grammy Award and a Golden Globe.

Saturday marked the first South African date of the Sting: Back To Bass worldwide tour. The concert to celebrate 25 years of Gordon Sumner’s solo career was held at Joburg’s Coca-Cola Dome and, surprisingly for a big international act, two dates were booked at the same venue - the 16-time Grammy Award-winning Sting performing again yesterday.

Sting is currently on the Back to Bass tour throughout Europe, the UK and South Africa in support of the recently released box set collection, 25 Years, which garnered a rave review from Keyboard Magazine in the April 2012 issue: "What I've learned over the years is that miracles don't happen and what works is the process," Sting writes in the liner notes for '25 Years', his three-CD-plus-DVD solo career retrospective. The process he speaks of shines in full, recorded glory here, with 55 tracks evincing his continued quest for aural eloquence. From his early, jazz-tinged exploits on 'The Dream of the Blue Turtles', to later explorations into dance, country, and classical fare, this collection is powerful proof of Sting's singular sonic imprint.
