Los Angeles Grammy winning singer Sting says music icon David Bowie is the inspiration behind his new album.

The 64-year-old musician says the Space Oddity hitmaker, who died in January at the age of 69 from cancer,

had a big impact on his LP, '57th and 9th', reported Entertainment Weekly.

"David Bowie went first, and then Lemmy (Kilmister), and then my friend Alan Rickman died, and then Prince. It all

seemed to topple on top of each other. It was a strange time because you think that these people are immortal, but then suddenly they're like the rest of us, they die.

"It intrigues me that great success is this brilliant light, but also every brilliant light creates a dark shadow. I think wisdom only comes when you can navigate both. I'm getting philosophical," Sting said.

The Englishman in New York singer, whose real name is Gordon Sumner, also said that he found inspiration for his new album through living and working in New York City.

The title from his album comes from the name of the intersection he passed every day on his way to and from his recording studio in the city.
