A&M TO RELEASE STING 'DEMOLITION MAN' EP, SEPT. 21; RE-RECORDING FOR STALLONE FLICK B/W FIVE LIVE RECORDINGS

 LOS ANGELES, Aug. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Sting has re-recorded the "Demolition Man" track (from The Police LP "Ghost In The Machine") which will be included on a six-song EP set for release by A&M on Sept. 21. The new urbanized version is suitably featured in Joel Silver's action fantasy "Demolition Man" movie this October, starring Sylvester Stallone and Wesley Snipes. Employing current Sting guitarist Dominic Miller, former Red Hot Chili Pepper Arik Marshall and Sounds of Blackness' resident diva Ann Bennett-Nesby, the track was re-recorded by Sting, hot new producer Stoker and A&M's Mark Mazetti over a five-month period this year.
 In addition to "Demolition Man," Sting's first ever domestic EP release also includes five live tracks recorded at a concert in Milan, Italy early this year: "King of Pain" from "Synchronicity," the 1983 chart-topper that spent 17 weeks at No. 1, "Love Is Stronger Than Justice (The Munificent Seven)," "It's Probably Me" and "Shape of My Heart" (all from Sting's current top-20 album "Ten Summoners' Tales," which has sold nearly 2 million units to date) and "A Day In The Life" from the Beatles' opus "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band." A performance-oriented video for "Demolition Man" will be shot this week by The End's hip young director, Marcus Rayboy.
 Sting and his band will perform "If I Ever Lose My Faith" at the MTV Video Music Awards on Thursday, Sept. 2. Sting's video for "If I Ever Lose My Faith" has earned three nominations this year (Best Male Video, Best Art Direction, and Best Cinematography).
