The Sting

Album: The Sting (2013)
  • This sultry, string-backed tune is the title track of Gabriella Cilmi's third album. Cilmi explained the song's meaning: 'It's about karma," she said, "I think the more we try to run away from trouble, the more we find it."
    "I love the string arrangement in this tune," she added, "it adds to the drama- I guess the production is inspired by Danger Mouse, I think he's a genius."
