Sting's 'If You Love Somebody Set Them Free 2019' Tops Dance Club Songs Chart...

September 12, 2019

Sting storms to the summit of Billboard's Dance Club Songs chart (dated Sept. 14) with "If You Love Somebody Set Them Free 2019" (2-1). One of six songs produced by Dave Aude for Sting's My Songs release, "Free" was remixed by Tom Stephan, among others.


Sting's original version of the song hit No. 10 on the tally in 1985. He earns his fourth No. 1, following "Send Your Love" (October 2003), "Stolen Car (Take Me Dancing)" (featuring Twista; August 2004) and an update of "Car," with Mylene Farmer (February 2016).


"When Sting asked me to produce for My Songs, I asked if I could work on 'If You Love Somebody Set Them Free,' as it's one of my all-time favorite Sting songs," Aude recently told Billboard. "It's the only one that I totally flipped on its head, and the result is pure dancefloor magic. I'm beyond proud."

Sting was in Detroit Monday evening selling a story of community, hard work, love and passion set in a city that is suffering the effects of losing the main industry that keeps its people alive. The Grammy Award-winning musician performed for a small audience of Broadway in Detroit for season subscribers, sponsors and local media Tuesday night to promote his upcoming musical, "The Last Ship." He'll be back in April to star in the Tony Award-nominated musical - or a play with music, as he describes it - when "The Last Ship"...

He'll return in April to star in "The Last Ship" about his hometown in England. There was Sting, rock’s Renaissance man, seated on a chair, acoustic guitar in hand, lyrics on a tablet on a music stand, at the sparsely filled Ordway Concert Hall on Sunday evening. Playing to his smallest Twin Cities audience since his local debut with the Police 40 years ago at the long-gone Longhorn rock club, Sting came to share the story and songs of “The Last Ship,” his 2014 Broadway bust that’s coming to the Ordway in April - with Sting in a starring role.
