The Police have announced a career-spanning vinyl box set called Every Move You Make: The Studio Recordings. The six-LP set includes the band’s entire catalog of recorded studio albums plus a 12-track disc called Flexible Strategies that contains B-sides and rarities.
The albums were remastered at Abbey Road Studios by Miles Showell and will be cut onto 180-gram heavyweight vinyl. The package will also include a 24-page photo book with rare and unseen images from the band’s personal archives.
All of this is to celebrate the 40th anniversary of their first album – Outlandos d’Amour – which was released just one year after Sting, Stewart Copeland, and Any Summers formed the group. “Having sold in excess of 50 million albums worldwide, The Police had phenomenal chart success and earned a multitude of accolades both public and critical, but they never allowed such peripherals to overshadow their commitment to the music itself,” the band’s website states. “This collection features 14 U.K. and 18 U.S. Top 20 singles, including five U.K. and four U.S. single number ones and four U.K. number one albums and a number one U.S album.”
Every Move You Make: The Studio Recordings is set to be released on November 16th. It is available now for pre-order.
