New Andy Summers Album Due Early Summer 2015; Preview Track Available Now Online

Now that Circa Zero has gone from zero to zero, founding member and guitarist Andy Summers is back on the path only he can chart – that of an autonomous six-string shaman.

Summers' eleventh original solo album – his first in over a decade – is called Qualia! and is scheduled for release in early summer 2015.

A preview track from Qualia! is available now at The ethereal, otherworldly sound of the tune recalls Summers' albums with King Crimson guitarist Robert Fripp, as well as Summers' early solo albums Mysterious Barricades and The Golden Wire.

At this time, it's not clear if the preview track is indicative of the overall style of the album. It also remains to be seen whether the album features Summers' original compositions from his score for his autobiographical documentary Can't Stand Losing You: Surviving The Police – which was actually completed and first showcased three years ago – or consists of recently recorded new material.

Stay tuned to for further details.
