LISTEN TO JULIANA HATFIELD’S POLICE COVER FROM HER UPCOMING ALBUM JULIANA HATFIELD SINGS THE POLICE
“With Juliana Hatfield Sings The Police I am continuing the project that I started last year with my Juliana Hatfield Sings Olivia Newton-John album. I hope to continue to go deep into covering artists that were important to me in my formative years.
In the Police, each player’s style was so distinctive, accomplished and unique that I didn’t even attempt to match any of it; for anyone to try and play drums like Stewart Copeland would be a thankless, pointless task that is bound to fail. Instead, I simplified and deconstructed, playing a lot of the drums myself, in my rudimentary, caveman style. Chris Anzalone (Roomful Of Blues) played the rest of the drums. Ed Valauskas (the Gravel Pit) and I each played about half of the bass parts, while I did all the guitars and keyboards.
I listened to a lot of the Police when I was preparing and making this album, and their recordings are as refreshing and exciting as ever. I hope that my interpretations of these songs can inspire people to keep loving the Police like I did, and still do.” ~Juliana Hatfield
The full album is due November 15th.
