Available for the first time on vinyl, Brand New Day contained the breakout arabesque track "Desert Rose." The 2 LP set is packaged in an exact replica of the original artwork, on 180g heavyweight vinyl.
Brand New Day is Sting's sixth solo album, released in 1999. The album peaked at number nine on the Billboard 200 and sold over 3.5 million copies in the United States. Upon its release, critics hailed Brand New Day as the triumphant return for Sting.
The album earned Sting a Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Album and his third Grammy Award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for the title track.
The new vinyl master was cut at the legendary Abbey Road studios to ensure exceptional audio quality.
"There are no overarching themes, no political messages on Brand New Day -- only love songs, story songs, and, for lack of a better term, inspirational exhortations. This is all a good thing, since by keeping things light he's managed to craft an appealing, engaging record." - Stephen Thomas Erlewine, allmusic.com
