The Police's Sting, Stewart Copeland Slap The Cuffs On Synchronicity's 30th Anniversary InTheStudio...

North American syndicated Rock radio show and website InTheStudio: The Stories Behind Historys Greatest Rock Bands investigates June 1983 when The Police Synchronicity album spent a staggering 17 weeks at # 1 on the U.S. album chart (only Michael Jacksons Thriller would do more at 22 weeks). But even more impressive was that all four previous Police albums would end up re-entering the Billboard Top 200 by years end. The Police found mass appeal success with the arresting Grammy Award-winning Song of the Year "Every Breath You Take". The bands endless touring would culminate with the biggest tour of ’83-’84 and would unfortunately set the stage for their disbandment. Sting, a voracious reader, explains where the albums title came from, as well as the decision to end The Police to InTheStudio host Redbeard.

"There was a book published called Synchronicity which is about the meaningfulness of apparent coincidences. Is there any meaning in coincidence? And that's what I wanted this record to be about. That's a grand design, I’m not sure if it comes off or not… "Synchronicity" was a very personal statement for ME…This was almost a solo record in the sense that the subject matter was very personal to me, and I couldn't really SHARE it. "Every Breath You Take", "Wrapped Around Your Finger", "King of Pain" were about my life. So that was the end of The Police, because I realized that I couldn’t involve this kind of work in a democratic process."
