Message In A Bottle Is A Must Learn As Andy Summers’ New Album “Triboluminescence”

If you like Sting, then you’ll love Message In A Bottle which was released by The Police which included guitarist Andy Summers and drummer Stewart Copeland.

Before looking at how to play Message In A Bottle, it would be a good time to look at Andy’s new album which must have one of the most awkward sounding names for an album in recent years. It certainly doesn’t roll of the tongue. Here’s what he had to say in a recent interview…

Question: What does the title of your new album mean?

Answer: It’s actually a scientific world meaning striking something and creating light from dark. I thought it was a great word and that is was a very apt metaphor for making music — or any creative act, really. We all start in the dark and have to create light.

Q: On the surface, it seems like a dark album.

A: I’m interested to hear you say that. I don’t know about that. It’s got a poignancy to it. I guess you could shade it that way. That’s a fair summation. It’s more toward to the dark side in a sense. But that makes it sound sort of miserable, and it’s not at all. It’s more like spiritual. Searching.

Q: The opening track is very big and cinematic. Q: The opening track is very big and cinematic.

A: The opening track, “If Anything,” is a sort of majestic, soulful, searching-type track. I debated the sequencing of this album, but decided to go with a sort of overture of an opening. I think it was kind of a ballsy move, but I decided that’s what I like to do.
