If you believe everything you read, Sting just oozes sex. But on Wednesday night (Sept. 28), The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon found a way to make one of our sexiest rock stars seem like a guy who just eats cereal in bed. You see, the former Police lead singer indulged Fallon in one of his newest bits, "First Textual Experience," in which the pair crooned decidedly unsexy couple conversations to each other about breakfast in bed, lost wallets and a guy named Tim who is not getting the response he's looking for from his intended.

Sting also chatted with Jimmy about his new album, 57th and 9th, an album inspired by his walk to work while recording the songs in Hell's Kitchen. "It's my civic right," Sting said when Fallon questioned whether such a big star can stroll the city's streets unmolested. "I like to walk, it's a privilege." And yes, people do yell "Roxanne!" at him all the time.

Watch him describe how the album came together.

 

And perform his new single, "I Can't Stop Thinking About You."
