The Police may record sixth album after reunion tour

Posted April 5th, 2007 by eric

Hmm. Not sure how wise of an idea this would be, but Police guitarist Andy Summers told NME, “If we do well with these concerts we may well make a sixth album. I can’t see why not.”

I can see why not. Because it will in all likelihood be an abomination. Sting’s songwriting has been in the shitter for decades. None of you is close to being in his prime. Let’s just play some shows, wallow in the nostalgia, and be done with it. No need to sully the back catalogue with a giant wart like a new album a quarter of a century after Synchronicity.
