Stewart Copeland was hand in Amsterdam to tell ROL about his new band Animal Logic, which he has formed with bassman Stanley Clarke and previously unknown singer Deborah Holland, who has written all the songs for their self-titled debut album, out in the U.K. May 22. "Nobody's heard of her," said Copeland, revealing that he and Clarke searched for a vocalist for two years before chancing upon a demo by Holland. He also told ROL that Joe Walsh was scheduled to make a guitar appearance on the album, but when he failed to show, his place was taken by another untired player called Michael Thompson. The band have already test-driven their live set in Brazil and Los Angeles and begin a series of European dates shortly.

Copeland has also finished a commission from the Cleveland Opera called 'Holy Blood and Crescent Moon,' which he saw on May 15 when the orchestra ran through it for the first time, it opens in October.
