Famed musician Sting is featured in the latest installment of NPR Music’s Tiny Desk (Home) Concert video series. Sting performed three songs at a lounge in New York City, including one with African pop star Shirazee.

Shirazee recently recorded a version of Sting’s “Englishman In New York” as “African In New York.” The pair collaborated to start the Tiny Desk (Home) Concert with an “Englishman In New York”/”African In New York” mashup. Sting and Shirazee then discuss how happy they are to share a room together after 12 months of lockdown.

For his second song, Sting went solo acoustic for “If I Ever Lose My Faith In You.” Sting is backed by pre-recorded percussion for the take on the track from 1993’s Ten Summoner’s Tales. The former The Police frontman closed out his Tiny Desk (Home) Concert with live rarity “Sister Moon,” a song Sting released on his 1987 solo album, Nothing Like The Sun.
