The Police hint at new album

Trio also line up new material for world tour

The Police‘s guitarist Andy Summers has hinted that the band may get to work on a new album after their forthcoming world tour.

The star, who attended a book signing and Q&A session for his memoirs ‘One Train Later’ in London yesterday (April 4), said the reformed three-piece would consider making a new album after their world tour.

He added: “If we do well with these concerts we may well make a sixth album. I can’t see why not.”


The guitarist also revealed that the trio will be debuting some new material at their forthcoming tour, which kicks off in Vancouver on May 28 before heading to Europe in August.

“We’ve been jamming acoustically lately and we’ve been really enjoying it,” said Summers. “We’ll be playing a couple of new songs at the shows in the summer.”

Dates for The Police‘s world tour sold out within an hour of going on sale in the UK and were snapped up within minutes in the US.

“I was shocked I had to admit. I thought we’d do alright on ticket sales but I never expected such a high demand,” said Summers. “We were booked to play arenas on many of the dates but we ended up having to upgrade to stadiums. It’s pretty daunting I have to admit.”
