Outlandos d'Amour (a loose French translation of Love’s Outlaws) is the debut album of iconic British rock band The Police.

Outlandos d'Amour is the debut album by The Police, released in 1978. The LP initially flopped, due to low exposure and an unfavourable reaction from the BBC to its first two singles, "Can't Stand Losing You" and "Roxanne" (about suicide and prostitution, respectively). As Sting describes: .We had publicity campaign with posters about how the BBC banned "Roxanne".

The roots of Outlandos d'Amour were laid in early 1978 when The Police checked into Surrey Sound Studios to record a few tracks. Our first album was recorded on second-hand multitrack tape - at that time, we couldn't afford our own tape," said Sting. We were working in a home-made studio in Leatherhead belonging to Nigel Gray, a doctor whose hobby was recording.

As it turns 40, The Police’s debut album, Outlandos D’Amour, boasts an enviable reputation. Widely regarded as one of new wave’s key records, it’s racked up multi-platinum sales since its release, and is rightly cited as the disc which set the band on the road to superstardom. Listen to Outlandos D’Amour right now. The Outlandos D’Amour sessions came at the end of 12 months of hard labour for The Police.

Outlandos d’Amour is notably the group’s most basic, straightforward album, yet it contains varying elements of experimentation, brandishing a beautiful collision of punk, jazz, and reggae that fared well when combined with melodic hooks and memorable choruses. The overall tone of the album feels complex and purposefully restrained at the same time. The overwhelming notion that The Police are far more effective at keeping things simple, at least on this album, is further driven home by the existence of its two most memorable moments, the uber single Roxanne and lyrically dark, striking Can’t Stand Losing You. Both tracks are built on reggae undertones, and at times are mirror images in song structure, complete with jumpy verses and driving, repetitive choruses.
