The Dream of the Blue Turtles is the first solo album by English musicianSting, released in the United States on 1 June 1985. The album reached number three on the UK Albums Chart. It reached number two on theBillboard 200. In the US the album spawned four singles, "If You Love Somebody Set Them Free", "Fortress Around Your Heart", "Russians" and "Love Is the Seventh Wave". The album earned Grammy nominations for Album of the Year, Best Male Pop Vocal Performance, Best Jazz Instrumental Performance and Best Engineered Recording.
The album is named after a dream of Sting's. Although the single "If You Love Somebody Set Them Free" reached number three in the US, it was a relative flop in the UK, where the album's track "Russians" (about Cold War nuclear anxieties, which had peaked in the 1980s) proved more popular.
In the UK the album was kept off number one in the week of its release byMarillion's Misplaced Childhood and Born in the U.S.A. by Bruce Springsteenoccupying the top two places. However, in the United States, the album reached number two on the Billboard 200.
The movie Bring on the Night documents some of the recording work that produced this album, as well as the subsequent tour.
