The Police argue over 'new album' plans

Newly reunited rock band The Police are battling with each other over whether or not to record another album.

Newly reunited rock band The Police are battling with each other over whether or not to record another album.

The group's last studio album Synchronicity was released in 1983 - a year before their split.

Following their recent reunion tour, guitarist Andy Summers is eager to make another album, but drummer Stewart Copeland has other ideas in mind.

Copeland says, "This tour is going to take us up through February. Another album then means another three months away from home… I don't need to spend three years doing this. At the end of one year we will part as friends.

"Sting and Andy are two of the most important people to me, whom I've abused and had disagreements with, and they are every bit like siblings. This is going to be a great year. Why want more?"
