1. Notice that Sting's vocal is doubled, but not closely in the verses (it is somewhat in the bridge). This leads me to believe that the double wasn't intentional, and you're just hearing two vocal passes that were put together in the mix.
2. Since you can hear the bass, vocal, kick and snare (and a ride cymbal in the bridge), it would seem that this is either the center channel from a 5.1 mix or a phase invert extraction from the stereo mix that cancels everything but what's in the center.
3. There's an abrupt edit in the second bridge which isn't found in the original version.
