Andy Summers revealed that the Police have started on a decade-long plan to revamp and expand the band's catalogue. The legendary guitarist has just published his first book of short stories, titled, Fretted And Moaning.
Summers revealed a deluxe, expanded version of the band's second album, Regatta de Blanc, is in the pipeline, as well as fully restored and remastered version of their legendary 1982 long-form video, The Police Around The World.
Summers told SuperDeluxeEdition.com, “The new 'super deluxe' version of The Police Around The World should have been coming out in October, but I think it’s now next March. It’s taken forever got get it sorted, because of issues like restoring 16mm film and getting the extras up to 4K level. There are a lot of bonus tracks and footage, including film from Japan that’s never been seen. The performances in that film are really nice and I’ve very pleased it’s coming out. So, that’s on the way and there’s a four-disc version of Regatta de Blanc coming too, with a lot of extra tracks.”
