Product Description
RELEASE DATE: DECEMBER 16th.

The Original Broadway Cast Recording includes two versions of the stirring ballad What Say You, Meg? one sung by the character Arthur Millburn and one recorded by Sting which will appear as a bonus track, available exclusively on the cast album for the first time.

THE LAST SHIP is the new musical with music and lyrics by 16-time Grammy Award-winner STING and book by Tony Award-winner John Logan and Pulitzer Prize-winner Brian Yorkey. After it opened on Broadway it received overwhelming praise for its emotionally powerful score. The Original Broadway Cast Recording for THE LAST SHIP is produced by the Emmy-Award winning and multi-Grammy-nominated producer Rob Mathes. The play is directed by Tony Award-winner Joe Mantello and choreographed by Olivier Award-winner Steven Hoggett, with musical direction, orchestrations and arrangements also by Rob Mathes.

In the fall of 2013, Sting introduced some of the selections heard in the musical on his own album of the same name, The Last Ship. The Original Broadway Cast album includes some of those original compositions performed by the acclaimed Broadway cast, as well as selections exclusively written and recorded for the stage production. Highlights include the title track The Last Ship, show favorites We ve Got Now t Else and If You Ever See Me Talking to a Sailor plus When We Dance, a beloved song from Sting s catalog.

Reviews:

First Nighter: Sting's 'The Last Ship' in Full Sail - The production, at the Neil Simon, with score by Sting, libretto by Tony winners John Logan and Brian Yorkey, direction by Tony winner Joe Mantello and choreography by Steven Hoggett, has just about everything musical advocates crave. It also boasts just about everything longtime Sting partisans would hope he'd bring to a Broadway stage.

Just to get even more enthusiastic: The Last Ship has huge heaps of something the Great White Way has been missing for far too long when characters sing: emotion that penetrates far more than several fathoms deep. Perhaps that's only appropriate for a work about ocean-going ships. --David Finkle: Huffingtonpost.com

Sting brings it. (4 out of 5 Stars)
The pop god delivers his A-game in The Last Ship, a new musical about coming home and letting go that overflows with heart. Not bad for a Broadway debut as a composer. --Daily News

The lesson of The Last Ship (*** out of four), the poignant, exuberant new musical that opened Sunday at the Neil Simon Theatre, is that you can go home again. And again. --USA Today
