The Police’s Andy Summers is getting ready to release a new EP of music inspired by his photographs. 

Vertiginous Canyons, dropping June 21, is a musical companion piece to his 2023 photography book A Series of Glances, with each track described as an “audiovisual snapshot” of a photo from the collection.

“This recording, Vertiginous Canyons, came about in a way somewhat different from my normal process,” says Summers, noting that after the publisher of the book requested he create music to accompany the photos, he thought, “Interesting – never have done that before!”

“I thought it should be something free-flowing, improvised much in the spirit of the photography itself,” he explains. “Therefore, I projected photographs from the book onto a screen and played through various devices and sounds for two or three hours and found my way into the tracks here. This approach seemed to be a truthful way to marry the camera and the guitar – photography and music.”

The first preview of the EP, “Into the Blue,” is available now via digital outlets.
