Sting dips his toe in the murky waters of EDM by lending that instantly recognizable voice to Afrojack‘s “Catch Tomorrow”. Taken from the Dutch DJ’s imminent debut album Forget The World, the socially aware club banger is an interesting experiment that doesn’t stray too far from the rock legend’s comfort zone — at least lyrically.
“Lost it all he’s homeless now walking on Sunset Boulevard alone, no place to go,” growls Sting on the track’s opening line over tinkling piano keys. The Brit then moves on to the adventures of other down-on-their-luck characters as the synths slowly arrive. “Catch Tomorrow” eventually explodes into an uplifting house anthem in the mold of Avicii‘s “Wake Me Up”. Listen after the jump.
