Mercury Falling is the fifth solo studio album by British musician Sting, originally released in March 1996 via A&M Records.

Mercury Falling sees Sting return to a more pensive view with changing weather a prominent motif for changing relationships. The album feels more serious than its predecessor Ten Summoner’s Tales (1993). Sting creates multi-layered arrangements around simple and memorable melodies and clever lyrics.

Sting wails over a synth backdrop about a lover who has deserted him on "The Hounds of Winter". "All Four Seasons" is a more playful account of an unpredictable woman, with sax and trumpet fills by the Memphis Horns. "I'm So Happy I Can't Stop Crying" has a country flavour to it, contrasted to the tender and fiddle laced "I Was Brought to My Senses".

Mercury Falling was co-produced by Sting and Hugh Padgham.

Four singles were released from the album: “Let Your Soul Be Your Pilot”; “You Still Touch Me”; “I Was Brought To My Senses”; and “I'm So Happy I Can't Stop Crying”.

In 1997, the album earned Sting two Grammy nominations for Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for "Let Your Soul Be Your Pilot".

The album reached #5 on the US Billboard 200, #4 on the UK and #14 on the Australian Albums charts.

Check out the tracks:  Let Your Soul Be Your Pilot”; “You Still Touch Me”; “I Was Brought To My Senses”; and “I'm So Happy I Can't Stop Crying”.
