Songs from the Labyrinth


“Songs from the Labyrinth,” took many people by surprise. The album features songs from the Elizabethan songwriter, John Dowland (1563–1626). Sting is joined by famous lute player Edin Karamazov. The songs will appear on Deutsche Grammophon, which is the world’s most celebrated classical music record label. Sting has been a Dowland fan for over 20 years when it was introduced to him in 1980 and has been intrigued by the uniqueness of the lute as well. Sting quotes, “For me these are pop songs written around 1600 and I relate to them in that way; beautiful melodies, fantastic lyrics, and great accompaniments.” Ben
