Sting Sings in the Holidays摇滚诗人斯汀的冬季狂想曲
【明星简介】
Sting是英国著名歌星,也曾是一名出色的摇滚乐手,无论作为Police乐队主唱还是后来的个人发展生涯,他都留下了很多经典歌曲。他几乎是英国乐坛长青树,他的音乐有着诗人的特色.他有很多不错的歌曲,都是有异于通俗的。他最为人们所知的一首歌曲是《Shape of my heart》,这是吕克·贝松导演的电影《这个杀手不太冷》(1994)的主题曲。

CNN主播艾谢•南达尔
He is one of the world's most renowned2 singers and his career has spanned three decades. Sting recently spoke with our Shannon Cook about his winter-themed3 album.
他是全球最知名的歌手,他的事业长达30年之久。斯汀口前接受了夏侬•库克的采访,谈论关于他的一张以冬天为主题的唱片。

Winter, it's a time that you revel in, isn't it.
冬天,那是最让你感到陶醉的季节,对吧?

STINC, SINGER AND MUSICIAN
歌手兼音乐人斯汀

I would say it's an undervalued4 season by most people because it's cold and uncomfortable. I think it's an important season for us because it's a time of reflection5 . It's the season of the imagination, of spirits and ghosts in the chimney6 and ghost stories and firesides and wanting to feel warm. And it's also very important psychologically because we need to reflect on the past so that we can move into the spring. Unless we reflect, we can't really go forwards.
我认为冬天的价值被大多数人低估了,因为冬天寒冷且不舒服我认为冬天对我们而言是个重要的季节,因为那是我们反思的时候冬天是个充满想象的季声,想象烟囱咀的神灵、鬼魂,在壁炉边听鬼故事,并且希望能感受到温暖。冬天在心理上也非常重要,因为我们必须要反省过去,好让我们能走向春天。除非我们反省,否则就不能真的向前迈进。

Is your beard part of the wintry7 theme?
您的胡子是否是冬天这个主题的一部分?

STINC, SINGER AND MUSICIAN
歌手兼音乐人斯汀

I had to grow a beard last November because I was in an opera with Elvis Costello, and I had to play a Greek. I had to play Dionysus8, so I grew the beard and they made my hair dark. And I sort of kept it, and I kind of enjoy it,  and then we started to record this album, and it seemed appropriate9, and I’ve still got it and Trudie hasn't complained yet. I remind her of one of her dogs, she says, but, you know, she likes dogs, fortunately.
我去年I1月开始就得开始留胡子,因为我要和埃尔维斯•卡斯提洛共同出演一部歌剧,我饰演一个希腊人、我耍扮演狄俄尼索斯,于是我留起了胡子,然后他们把我的头发染黑。后来我就继续留着胡子,而且还挺喜欢这样的。接着我们就开始录制这张唱片,感觉挺搭的,所以到现在还留着胡子,特鲁迪(编注:Sting的妻子)到现在还没抱怨过。她说,我让她想起她的一只狗。不过幸好,她喜欢狗。

What kind of a dog?
什么样的狗?

STINC, SINGER AND MUSICIAN
歌手兼音乐人斯汀

She has Irish wolfhounds10. They have the same kind of texture11,
她有一只爱尔兰猎狼犬。那种狗的毛和我的胡子质感一样。

We began recording last January in Tuscany. I have a home in Tuscany. I've lived there for years now. When you say Tuscany, most people think, oh it's warm and it's hot and they grow grapes and everything, but in the winter, it's freezing. It's really very cold. And the album cover is photographed on my estate12 there, with all that snow and walking my dog. And so it was a very appropriate place to begin a winter album. And we all huddled13 around a kitchen table with the fire on and our coats and our scarves, and we started to explore these songs together. In that kind of weather, it kind of helps. It's that kind of method recording.
我们去年1月在托斯卡尼开始录音。我在托斯卡尼有个家,我在那儿已经住了12年。每当提到托斯卡尼时,大部分人都会以为那里很暖和、很热,那里都在种葡萄等等,但是冬天时,那里却是天寒地冻,真的很冷。唱片的封面就是在我的庄园拍摄的,有很多雪,而我在遛狗。所以那里是个非常适合开始制作冬天专辑的地方。我们所有人都围着厨房的餐桌,屋里生着火,桌上还放着我们的大衣和围巾,然后大家一起开始研究这些歌。那种天气状况其实还挺有帮助的。有点像是体验式录音。

In two years, time, you'll be 60. How do you feel about that?
两年后您就要60岁了。对此您有何感想?

STINC, SINGER AND MUSICIAN
歌手兼音乐人斯汀

Well, I was, you know, 58 a week ago. I feel like I'm 14-and-a-half inside, and yet I have the memories of a 58-year-old man, and so I've the best of both worlds, you know. I have a certain sagacityi14, a certain wisdom that comes with reaching this, you know, very august15 age, but also I feel very useful ir, myself, my physical self. Also mentally, I feel quite young but not immature16, but just have a lot of energy. So it's good.
我一星期前刚满58岁,我感觉自己才14岁半,但我却拥有一个58岁的人的回忆,所以我拥有这两个世界里的精华。我拥有某种程度的睿智,某种到了这个年纪而拥有的智慧,这个岁数让人敬畏,但我觉得自己身体还很好。心理方面,我觉得我还很年轻,但并非不成熟,而是精力充沛。所以这样很好。

SHANNON COOK, CNN CORRESPONDENT
CNN特派员夏侬•库克

Over the years as your musical style has evolved 11, we've seen you in The Police, we've seen you with pop, with jazz, a lute" album. Do you see how your audience changes?
过去这些年来您的音乐风格有所改变,我们见过您在警察乐队时的表现,听过您演唱流行歌曲、爵士乐和一张鲁特琴专辑。您认为您的听众变了吗?

STINC, SINGER AND MUSICIAN
歌手兼音乐人斯汀

I don't think my audience changes. I think the audience has come to expect the unexpected. I think I never want them to second-guess what I'm going to do next. I have no idea what I'm ... even I don't know. I think they appreciate19. that sense of, you know, "Well, what's he got this time?"
我不认为我的听众变了。我认为听众已经预期到一些意料之外的事。我从未让他们去猜我接下来要做什么。我不知道我接下来要……连我自己都不知道。我认为他们会喜欢那种“他这次要拿什么东西出来?”的那种感觉。
