Billboard talked to Stewart, who -as always- maybe releases more than he really should. In the article, Stewart confirms that The Police plan to release later this year a live CD and DVD from its reunion tour. It will contain footage filmed and recorded on 1 and 2 December 2007 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The DVD will also include a documentary about the tour, titled “Better Than Therapy” and directed by Copeland’s son, Jordan.
Interestingly, Stewart confirms that he, Sting and Andy Summers made an unsuccessful attempt at recording a new version of “Truth Hits Everybody” from the trio’s 1979 debut album, “Outlandos d’Amour.” “We went into the studio, laid down a backing track and immediately disagreed about where to go with it,” Copeland recalls. “And since there wasn’t an audience cheering at us … it just kind of withered on the vine.”
Stewart is currently finalizing a commission “with a major orchestra to write a major concerto” after the tour ends. “It’s sort of like Sting’s lute thing — so gay, but OK,” Copeland says. “Real uncommercial, career suicide moves is probably what you’ll be seeing from the three of us over the next year or two before we get back into the business of earning a living from our music.”
