"We'll Be Together" is a song performed by Sting on his album ...Nothing Like the Sun.

The song was released as the lead single from the album, and reached #7 and #41 on the U.S. and UK singles charts, respectively. In 2004 during the North American dates of Sting's Sacred Love Tour he was joined by Annie Lennox. During the tour, this was the only song that the two performed together. They then recorded a version of the song together which later appeared on the soundtrack for Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason.

Sting originally wrote the song for a beer commercial for Kirin Brewery Company. The original recording included Eric Clapton on guitar, while other takes feature Bryan Loren instead. The original would surface later on Sting's 1994 greatest hits album Fields of Gold: The Best of Sting 1984–1994.

The video for the song, directed by Mary Lambert, was based on the film Orpheus, and includes an appearance by Sting's wife Trudie Styler. Sting wears a homemade jumper in the video based on the Belgian cartoon The Adventures of Tintin.

Lyrics from Sting's 1985 song "If You Love Somebody Set Them Free" are featured near the end of the song.
