The location is Sting's beachside house in Malibu the morning after the night before: another night, another venue - the Hollywood Bowl - another three-hour concert of his songs.

That's concert with a capital "C" because this time Sting has brought along more than just a few of his favourite musicians to join him, he's brought along the 50-strong Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, "the biggest band I've ever worked with". SYMPHONICITY is the name of the project - a world tour and an album released 13 July - and in a wide-ranging conversation Sting talks to Edward Seckerson about the reimagining of many of his classic songs in orchestral terms.
