The Police will release a six-CD box set celebrating their 1983 smash hit album Synchronicity on July 24.

The limited-edition deluxe box set will feature 55 previously unreleased tracks, including Sting’s original and never-heard demos for the album. The box also includes new interviews and liner notes, rare archive memorabilia and unseen band photographs from the era. The upcoming box set will also be available on four LPs, two CDs, two LPs, a picture disc and an e-album, celebrating the 40th anniversary of the album’s release on June 17th, 1983.

The “Limited Edition Deluxe Box Set” was assembled over the past three years with the help of Sting, guitarist Andy Summers and drummer Stewart Copeland. The package includes the remastered album along with “Murder by Numbers,” a song originally featured as a bonus track on cassette and CD versions, and a disc devoted to B-sides and non-album bonus tracks making their CD debut.

‘Synchronicity’ was The Police’s fifth (and last) album, which went on to become their most successful project. The album remained at No. 1 for 17 week, going eight times platinum, and won the Grammy Award for Rock Vocal Group while also being inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. Synchronicity included four Top 20 singles: “King of Pain,” “Synchronicity II,” “Wrapped Around Your Finger” and “Every Breath You Take,” which was a No. 1 hit for eight weeks and won the Grammy for ‘Song of the Year.’
