Former Police Guitarist Andy Summers Explains Metal Dog Album

(Prog) Andy Summers' new album Metal Dog was created after a contemporary dance project failed to mature. The former Police guitarist and Robert Fripp collaborator says he regards the work as "avant-garde," while descriptions of the tracks include "freaky textures," "sunny moods" and "wild blanket of harmonic distortion."

Summers recently told Goldmine: "I was looking at a visual artist in New York and I was going to do the music and put it with a dance company. I was very much thinking about dances on a stage, with video and all that.

"Towards the end, we didn't come up with much, so I had a lot of tracks and I decided there was a really good album in here. I was pleased to form it into a full-length CD." Read more here.
