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"
