The new set features Sting's duet with Annie Lennox for a take on his 1987 classic, "We'll Be Together." The pair have been close friends for decades and even toured together back in 2004. He recalled to us when the two connected in the late-1970's: ["I remember the first time we were in BBC studios in London, at a radio broadcast. And she was with a band called the Tourists with Dave Stewart. We were the Police, and they supported us. And I remember her distinctive voice even then. And then became the Eurythmics, and then we would see each other now and then at a distance and we'd wave. I never thought we'd tour together, but strange how things pan out in the long run."] SOUNDCUE (:22 OC: . . . the long run)
