(Gibson) Circa Zero is the name of The Police's Andy Summers' new band. He's joined by multi-instrumentalist Rob Giles of the band The Rescues and drummer Emmanuelle Caplette. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Summer says the trio have a full album recorded and mastered, but are undecided how to release the songs.

"There's a lot of interest, but it's like everything else now should we do this or should we do that, go the internet route or go a different route?" says Summers. "But we want to get it out pretty soon because we finished the record it's completely mastered."

Rob Giles adds that Summer is back blazing on guitar. "All our songs trudge like rock. There's one that's an odd time [signature], the ballad, but it's not a power ballad about a girl so much. Everything else is really full energy, not that that one isn't.

"As a fan of Andy's I enjoy all of his solo work, but f*** that he gets to rock, and we haven't heard this virtually ever."

Summers adds, of the songs: "They've all got a lot of energy. It's almost an album with 10 or 11 singles. They've all got strong attitudes and hooks, which is what we were intending to write." more on this story
