Juliana Hatfield has announced a new album where she covers the songs of The Police, the fittingly titled Juliana Hatfield Sings The Police, and has shared its first single, a cover of “De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da.” Juliana Hatfield Sings The Police is due out November 15 via American Laundromat. Check out “De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da” below, followed by the album’s tracklist and cover art.

The album is the next step in Hatfield’s covers project, in which she plans “to go deep into covering artists that were important to me in my formative years,” as she puts it in a press release. The first installment was 2018’s Juliana Hatfield Sings Olivia Newton-John, although in between she also released an album of originals, 2019’s Weird.

Hatfield self-produced Juliana Hatfield Sings The Police and played most of the instruments on the album, save for a little help from Chris Anzalone (Roomful of Blues) and Ed Valauskas (The Gravel Pit).

“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,” Hatfield says in a press release. “I hope that my interpretations of these songs can inspire people to keep loving The Police like I did, and still do.”

Of the tracklist, Hatfield says in the press release: “The songs I’ve chosen seem to resonate in the present moment. ‘Rehumanize Yourself,’ ‘Landlord,’ and ‘Murder By Numbers’ explore ugly kinds of nationalism, abuses of power, and the mendacity of large swaths of the ruling class. And then there are the timeless, relatable psychodramas: ‘Every Breath You Take,’ ‘Can’t Stand Losing You,’ and ‘Canary in a Coalmine.’”
