Description

Music video by Sting performing Fields Of Gold.  

(C) 1993 A&M Records

"Fields of Gold" is a song written and recorded by Sting. It first appeared on his 1993 album Ten Summoner's Tales. Despite not reaching the Top 10 in the UK or the Top 20 in the United States when it was released as a single from the album, it has become one of his most famous songs, with many cover versions by other artists.

"Fields of Gold" and all the other album tracks were recorded at Lake House, Wiltshire, mixed at The Townhouse Studio, London, England and mastered at Masterdisk, New York City. The harmonica solo is played by Brendan Power, and the Northumbrian smallpipes are played by Kathryn Tickell. The cover of the album was photographed at Wardour Old Castle in Wiltshire, as was the cover for the album Ten Summoner's Tales.

In Lyrics By Sting, the singer described the view from his sixteenth-century Wiltshire manor house:
"In England, our house is surrounded by barley fields, and in the summer it's fascinating to watch the wind moving over the shimmering surface, like waves on an ocean of gold. There's something inherently sexy about the sight, something primal, as if the wind were making love to the barley. Lovers have made promises here, I'm sure, their bonds strengthened by the comforting cycle of the seasons."

The music video was directed by Kevin Godley. and features a silhouette of Sting walking through a village containing common features seen throughout the UK such as a red telephone box and a red pillar box.
