Sting calls for climate sanity in the charming yet urgent animated video for “One Fine Day.” In the clip, the English appears as a silhouette in a vibrant, blooming universe.

The beautiful imagery is undercut by a sense of peril. Sting mulls the disappearing polar icecaps and politicians choke the world in a literal tug-of-war. The song’s final verse, in which Sting flips animal idioms like “raining cats and dogs” and “pigs will fly” into images of environmental chaos, has an air of trepidation.

The clip was directed by James Larese and recalls the hand-drawn aesthetic of the video for Sting’s 1985 single, “Love Is the Seventh Wave.” “One Fine Day” appears n Sting’s latest album, 57th & 9th, which arrived in November. While the LP follows 2013’s The Last Ship – a record inspired by Sting’s play of the same name – 57th & 9th notably marks the English musician’s first record of guitar-driven rock in decades.

Sting will kick off an extensive North American tour in support of the album February 1st in Vancouver.
