New Police Album Possible?

Posted by - 12:41 PM on 10/08/07
Andy Summers, guitarist of The Police, said in a recent interview that the band might be considering recording a new album following their reunion tour.
From the ArticleIt's sort of like living with the elephant in the room. I would see it as a challenge, to make an absolutely brilliant pop album at this stage of our career, and that would be something quite remarkable.

I disagree. If a band feels like they've still got music left to write, why should we tell them they shouldn't do it? If it's bad, we can tell them by not buying it, but I'd be really interested to see what they could write at this stage of their careers and their lives.

If doing a megatour for millions of dollars, Don't Stand So Close To Me '86, and Sting's acting career didn't tarnish their legacy, I doubt a new album would.

I would be incredibly interested to hear what this album would sound like; if they were able to recapture the magic. I don't think they are after their prime either, I mean, as musicians, they've probably grown since 1983. It would be interesting to see how the changes would be seen in their music

How can you not feel it without knowing what they'd write? Who's to say they don't write a classic pop album for the ages? Of course it could suck, but that's the whole reason bands record albums. Seems cynical to judge before even knowing what direction they might take.

Anyone have an extra ticket to see The Police in Washington DC at the Verizon Center on 11/5? I'll be in DC for a work conference and would like to go. Let me know.
