‘Mark Knopfler – The Studio Albums 2009-2018‘, a nine-LP/six-CD boxset and digital SD/HD, will be released on 7th October by UMC/EMI, gathering together the second half of his solo songbook with his more recent studio albums. This, in addition to last year’s ’96 – 2007 collection, creates a complete set. The box will include ‘Get Lucky‘ (2009), ‘Privateering‘ (2012), ‘Tracker‘ (2015) and his latest release ‘Down the Road Wherever‘ (2018), plus a collection of studio b-sides and bonus tracks and two previously unreleased songs – ‘Back In The Day‘ and ‘Precious Voice From Heaven‘. The audio quality has been overseen by the original mastering engineer Bob Ludwig at Gateway Mastering, while Bernie Grundman cut the vinyl.
The new live musical version of Local Hero, with new music and lyrics by Knopfler, will be staged at Chichester Festival Theatre from 8th October – 19th November. You can buy tickets for the show here.
