Former Dire Straits Guitarist Mark Knopfler Announces New Album

Former Dire Straits guitarist Mark Knopfler has announced a new album, One Deep River.

The LP will arrive via Blue Note on April 12. It was produced by Knopfler himself and Guy Fletcher at British Grove Studios in London.

The title of the album pays homage to the guitarist’s early years in Newcastle, England, where the River Tyne flows.

“Crossing the Tyne is always on your mind,” Knopfler explained in an email newsletter sent to fans. “It’s what you were doing when you were leaving as a youngster and that feeling is always the same every time you do it. You’re heading out or you’re coming back, and it just connects with your childhood. The power of it doesn’t go away.”

One Deep River is available for pre-order now on CD, double gatefold vinyl and cassette. Additionally, there’s a limited-edition box set that includes the album on both vinyl and CD, plus nine bonus tracks on LP and CD, a litho print of Knopfler, a guitar pick set and tin and an enamel badge.
