Sting, the 17-time winner of the Grammy Award published “Flowing water”, a perfect rock song for a sparkling opening of his new one album, The bridge.
The sounds of “Flowing water” no the most nostalgic brings back to the trio formed by Sting with Stewart Copeland And Andy Summers in the far 1977, Police precisely, where Sting used a register vocal particularly tall.
Just the ex Police, in a recent interview, talked about his way of singing and the style used to dominate the instruments, and compared himself to heavy metal singers.
Always dice Sting: “To try to overpower the noise of the band you need a similar register, you can’t sing as a baritone in a rock band! “
Returning to “Flowing water”, the song is accompanied by a music video in black and white, directed by Eric Ryan Anderson, avant-garde photographer and director.

“Flowing water”, explains Sting, “It’s an appropriate start for an album that tries to bridge all the small differences that can separate us.”
Water is a female symbol, it’s about woman and how powerful she is in my life.
In religion we speak of Jesus, the son of God. I speak instead of the daughter of God because I think the female entity is more powerful.
Man should accept that he has a female half in himself, it is his part mother, the sensitive part, the part that can compromise, that can flow.
It doesn’t matter how bad you are ‘macho’. All those symbolic aspects of water, rivers and rain are very important to me, I was born next to a river … obviously, like songwriter, it’s a symbol you can always use… and people understand that.
They understand this because we all are water. You come tides, we are influenced by moon which attracts water into our body “.
We hope that this song of the piece, by the author himself, will be of some use femicide in the world!
