Sting's reformed band hint they could record new material

The Police to release new album?
Andy Summers, guitarist in the recently reformed band The Police, has hinted that the band may enter the studio to record a new album.

Although Summers said the band had no definite plans to record new material, he explained that it would be “remarkable” to make a new album.

“It's sort of like living with the elephant in the room,” he told Associated Press. “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."

He added: “Right now it is just the tour holding everything together mentally, physically and musically. The tour and the traveling and the playing and the tension you have to keep to do it every night is all-devouring. It is just too much."

The Police haven't released an album since 1983's 'Synchronicity', but reunited earlier this year for an extensive world tour.
