Sting‘s 2016 album 57th & 9th has just been issued as a special Japan Tour Edition which offers six bonus tracks over and above the standard deluxe edition.
Specifically, fans get the six tracks from the vinyl EP Live at the Bataclan, which was released for Record Store Day this year. As things currently stand, this is the only place to enjoy those tracks (which include the classics Englishman in New York, Fragile, Message In A Bottle and Every Breath You Take) on CD.
These live bonus tracks were recorded at Sting’s concert at the Bataclan theatre in Paris on 12 November 2016. The performance that night commemorated the one year anniversary of the terrorist attack at the iconic venue.
This release is on the Japanese SHM-CD format (compatible with all standard CD players) and includes outer slipcase, OBI-strip, and two booklets, one of which has lyrics in Japanese and English.
The 57th & 9th Japan Tour Edition is out now. You can order direct from CD Japan, or use the links below.
