August Winds

“This tune is from Sting’s 2013 album titled The Last Ship, his first album of original material since 2003. The Last Ship is also the basis for his late-2014 Broadway production. Sting grew up in the ‘50s during the dying days of shipbuilding in his town, which was dependent on it. The local industry finally collapsed in the 80’s. Now Sting pays a tribute with a song cycle heavy on Celtic sea chanteys, acoustic instrumentation, and somber, hard won truths. A lilting song such as “August Winds”, is where Sting is at his purest.” (Source: iTunes)
