The Soul Cages focuses on the death of his father. Sting has said in interviews that he developed a writer's block shortly after his father's death. This episode lasted several years and he was unable to write any songs at all. The only way he was able to overcome this affliction was to deal with the death of his father through his music. The first song written for The Soul Cages was "Why Should I Cry for You?" and Sting has stated the rest of the album flowed quite easily after that first hurdle was overcome. Most of the songs have motifs related to sailing or the seas (Sting's father was a sailor). There are also references to Newcastle, the part of England where Sting grew up.

Mercury Falling is the fifth studio album released by Sting. ...
