The Police will release a live CD/DVD set documenting their year-plus reunion tour.

A documentary about the reunion tour, titled Better Than Therapy, will also be included on the DVD, with Copeland's son Jordan the director of the doc. The reformed Police will perform their last concert together August 7th at New York City's Madison Square Garden. That concert will benefit public television stations in New York. As another tie-in, the band will host a number of eBay auctions featuring VIP ticket packages and autographed memorabilia, all benefitting public television.

“Bird on a Wire”

Leonard Cohen | 1969

While living on the Greek island of Hydra, Cohen was battling a lingering depression when his girlfriend handed him a guitar and suggested he play something. After spotting a bird on a telephone wire, Cohen wrote this prayer-like song of guilt. First recorded by Judy Collins, it would be performed numerous times by artists incuding Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker and Rita Coolidge. "I'm always knocked out when I hear my songs covered or used in some situation," Cohen told Rolling Stone. "I've never gotten over the fact that people out there like my music."
