Sting and Shaggy are previewing their forthcoming collaborative album with a Caribbean-flavored single titled “Don’t Make Me Wait.” The single offers a glimpse into the island-influenced music on 44/876, set for release on April 20.

According to an official statement, the two musicians wrote and jammed together for several weeks in New York City, crafting songs that reflect their shared love for Jamaica – its music, its people and its culture. Contributors to the sessions included legendary bassist Robbie Shakespeare, Jamaican dancehall great Aidonia, and longtime Sting guitarist Dominic Miller, as well as a team of New York and Jamaican songwriters.

The duo recently debuted “Don’t Make Me Wait” in front of 20,000 people in Kingston, staging a benefit concert to raise funds for the local Bustamante Hospital for Children. “The most important thing to me in any kind of music is surprise," said Sting, speaking recently with Rolling Stone. "And everybody is surprised by this collaboration – by what they're hearing. We're surprising."
