The Police's Andy Summers Announces New Album 'Triboluminescence'

Andy Summers

Former guitarist for The Police, Andy Summers has announced that he will be releasing his new solo album "Triboluminescence" on March 24th. It is the follow-up to his 2015 release "Metal Dog."

Summers had the following to say about the new studio effort, "Triboluminescence is actually a scientific word that means creating light from dark, which I believe is a great metaphor for any creative act and, especially, music.

"I felt compelled to follow up the record I made last year, Metal Dog, where I was trying to go into a new territory - with not just a straight-ahead jazz or jazz fusion or rock or pop, but something very much my own genre.

"This record results from a lifetime's worth of receiving influence, digesting it, and trying to create a new voice. I feel like I'm taking the Metal Dog album and moving on from there and trying to expand the writing, the tonal palette and this idea that I have about creating new music"
