Mark Knopfler - Down The Road Wherever (CD ALBUM)

Mark Knopflerwill release his ninth solo studio album on 16 November 2018 on his own British Grove label via EMI Music Australia. Entitled 'Down The Road Wherever'it features 14 unhurriedly elegant new Knopflersongs inspired by a wide range of subjects, including his early days in Deptford with Dire Straits, a stray football fan lost in a strange town, the compulsion of a musician hitching home through the snow, and a man out of time in his local greasy spoon. Mark has a poet's eye for telling details that infuse his songs with his unique psychogeography –'where the Delta meets the Tyne' as he describes it –and his warm Geordie vocal tone and his deft, richly melodic guitar playing are as breathtaking and thrilling as ever.

'Down The Road Wherever'has been produced by Knopflerand Guy Fletcher and was recorded at British Grove Studios in London. The band features Mark Knopfleron guitars, Jim Cox and Guy Fletcher on keyboards, Nigel Hitchcock on saxophone and Tom Walsh on trumpet, John McCuskeron fiddle, Mike McGoldrick on whistle and flute, Glenn Worfon bass, Ian 'Ianto' Thomas on drums and Danny Cummings on percussion. Richard Bennett and Robbie McIntosh also feature on guitar and Trevor Mires on trombone.Imelda May, Kris Drever, Lance Ellington,Beverley Skeeteand Katie Kissoonadd backing vocals.All songs are written by Mark Knopflerapart from 'Just A Boy Away From Home' where he shares the credits with Rodgers and Hammerstein, as the song uses a piece of 'You'll Never Walk Alone' to spin its tale of a lone Liverpool fan wandering the empty streets of Newcastle after midnight.
