Added DiffLines:

* RearrangeTheSong: ''Symphonicities'' and ''My Songs'' are both a collection of rearranged versions of Sting's previous hits; the first is in the style of symphonic orchestra music (hence the name), the second in the style of contemporary pop, presumably to act as a gateway album to the Millennial and Gen Z crowd.


Gordon Matthew Thomas Sumner, a.k.a. Sting (born 2 October 1951), is an English singer-songwriter and sometime actor who launched a successful solo career after a short but spectacular run fronting Music/ThePolice. Without Stewart Copeland's influence his sound became mellower, and he became a staple of Adult Contemporary radio stations, while still dabbling in a variety of genres.
