Composer, singer-songwriter, actor, author, and activist Sting was born in Newcastle, England before moving to London in 1977 to form The Police with Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers. The band released five studio albums, earned six Grammy Awards and two Brits, and was inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003.
L.A. band The Record Company first connected over a John Lee Hooker album called Hooker N' Heat, on which the legendary boogie bluesman collaborated with Canned Heat.
The guitar-bass-drums trio's debut album is called Give It Back To You. Hear the band perform songs from the record in the audio segment above, and get a look inside the studio in the performance video of "Off The Ground" below.
Being in a band feels a lot like being in a relationship: Making music with another person borders on spiritual, and is one of the most intimate experiences you can share with another individual. That's precisely why the long-awaited reunion of mid-'70s-era Santana works so well on record: These musicians' chemistry is palpable, and it flows through Santana IV, their new album together.
