High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Sacred Love is the seventh studio album by Sting. The album was released on 30 September 2003. The album featured racier beats and experiments collaborating with hip-hop artist Mary J. Blige and sitar player Anoushka Shankar. Some songs like "Inside" and "Dead Man's Rope" were well received; and Sting had experimented with new sounds, in particular the more rock-influenced "This War". Sting adapted the first quatrain of William Blake's Auguries of Innocence for the first four sung lines of "Send Your Love".
