Symphonicities is the companion CD to Sting's world tour, featuring the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra conducted by Steven Mercurio. The new studio album, comprised of Sting's most celebrated songs re-imagined for symphonic arrangement, serves as the ultimate commemoration of the live concert experience.

Reinterpreted for the tour and correlating album, Sting's greatest hits have been fitted with brand new orchestrations arranged by Jorge Calandrelli, Michel Legrand, Steven Mercurio, and others. In addition to the single "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic," highlights include fan-favorites culled from The Police songbook such as "Roxanne" and "Next To You," as well as songs from Sting's enduring solo career including "Englishman in New York," "I Burn for You," "Why Should I Cry for You," and "She's Too Good For Me."

Sting's interest in collaborating with an orchestra began in 2008 following an invitation to perform with the legendary Chicago Symphony Orchestra and was furthered by the opportunity to join the Philadelphia Orchestra for a celebration of the 153rd anniversary of that city's Academy of Music. With reworked selections from his expansive catalog, these performances left an indelible mark on Sting and provided the initial inspiration for his tour. From the Label
