Mark Knopfler returns with a new album ‘Down The Road Wherever’

Mark Knopfler will release a ninth studio album, Down The Road Wherever, next month.

The former Dire Straits frontman tends to knock out solo albums every three years or so, and indeed, this follows 2015’s Tracker.

The 13-track album is available on CD and 2LP vinyl but is expanded to 16 tracks for the deluxe CD edition.

A box set edition brings together 2LP vinyl and deluxe CD and adds a print of the artwork and guitar tablature of a selected track. The box also includes a bonus 12-inch single and a download code for all audio. The four-track 12-inch includes one of the three bonus tracks on the deluxe CD (‘Drovers’ Road’) but the other three appear to be exclusive.

The album is described as staying “true to the folk and roots-inflected ambience of his solo material, but introduces new elements of jazz, funk and even a hint of the rockier leanings of earlier days.” Long-time collaborator Guy Fletcher, returns.

Down The Road Wherever is released on 16 November 2018.
