Sting and Shaggy Release “44/876”

Sting and Shaggy: 44/876In a somewhat unlikely pairing, Sting and Shaggy have teamed up to release 44/876. The album’s title is taken from the area codes for the U.K. and Jamacia, respectively, to represent each musician’s background.

“I think on paper it’s pretty unlikely. We have very different vocal styles,” the former Police bassist admits. “Yet when we actually do sing together, it’s surprising how they blend and how they compliment each other. And I think that reflects our friendship. We just had a good time. When we’re not singing, we’re laughing.”

The camaraderie is evident in this clip of the duo performing their single “Don’t Make Me Wait” on Jimmy Fallon:

44/876 is available now on CD, vinyl and as a digital download (iTunes and Amazon MP3).
