Notes and Editorial Reviews

This deluxe edition includes a hardbound book and a bonus DVD with behind-the-scenes footage and an exclusive interview with Sting.

Sting’s latest album is dedicated to his favorite season—Winter—a season which has inspired countless songwriters over the centuries and produced a wealth of music exploring all of its many guises. If On a Winter’s Night... presents an arc of songs that conjures the season of spirits, resulting in a haunting, spiritual and reflective musical journey.

Read more “The theme of winter is rich in inspiration and material,” comments Sting. “By filtering all of these disparate styles into one album, I hope we have created something refreshing and new.”
