MK started working on a musical with Lynda La Plante in the early 90s...

I was thinking about that the other day. Couldn't find the original info, might have even been on one of the last dais newsletters or something.....

Sting's musical was pretty lovely: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Last_Ship_(musical)
Actually it was great, the songs are fine and it sounded 0% like The Police, which is also great.
Although I'm not too excited about it, I guess I should say thanks that it is not opera :lol

''If 30,000 people can pay to see Dire Straits on tour,'' she said, ''there's a huge market which is untapped. It's just getting them in, putting something on stage they want to see.''

Hm.

And what about this?:

"I CAN tell you that there are many musicians involved in this project, most of them are very familiar to us all"

There was definitely an MK interview where it was mentioned as well, possibly Record Collector from 93... Which I don't have to hand right now. :(

What if I told you, that this leak actually was planned and was carefully executed to misdirect fans from the real thing? You see, they've even did the leak through Richard, as in the most detective films—the killer is always a gardener or something, someone unexpected. This may be the greatest act of keeping recording process in secret, after all they got to keep the mark, right?

Could be that I did not remember it  correctly.. Guy was talking of the two projects going "parallel" and "simultanously".  Maybe that made me think the projects were connected. Sorry, my fault.

Well, it could be connected. The new album may be simply a collection of songs from the musical like it was with Sting's The Last Ship.
...Well, he's a big star now but I've been a fan of his for years. The way he sings and plays guitar still bring me to tears...

Occam's razor begs to differ. :)

They are different projects. One is the musical, the other is a MK solo record.

My guess is official announcement is very close Bennett won't dare to mention something that is so secret.

Anyway we still don't know WHICH musical is and if it will be represented in London too...
