yeah. too much time this time if you ask me.
but what can we do?
But at least we will have a new album next year, a secret project, a Tour docu 2 years too late, Killers and Tommy Emmanuel Contributions
not bad at all
I think September will bring some more info. Summer break over

I understand what you men but I believe that this is also the first time MK is working on a new project for almost one year now without sharing any information about it. So that's giving us plenty of time to speculate about it.....

Fair enough.

Guy is not keen on giving any information about an official announcement on the project on his forum today. I think we are far away from any kind of official information. It would really surprise me if they will come with info anytime soon. I for sure hope we will get some tour news in the next month but I really doubt it.........

From Guy's forum: "It's also still not possible for me to say anything just yet but I can say it is gathering pace and in my opinion, will be fantastic."

The last time he was also asked about official announcement his answer was: Soon.
That was more than six months ago......  But he, if there is some news in the next weeks that's fine with me :lol :lol :lol but like I said before, i doubt it.....
The only info we get I think is from Guy new diary he promised us and that one will be in September.

Yes, that's true... Nonetheless, I like to read him writing "fantastic"  :-)

This is definitely the best album waiting ever, do you agree? I've never witnessed a better album waiting in my life before. First-class waiting, for sure. Fantastic!

Any announcement before December would be a surprise to me.

STP was a four years waiting, but with two film scores released (Wag the dog and Metroland) and some NHB short tours (1997, 1998 and 1999) that made it easier .

It surprises me that the documentary with possible live album has a 2018 release. With also a new MK album in 2018 and the secret project thing means that probably all his projects he has been working on comes out in 2018.. Thats kind off strange i think.....

I'm going to use my right for speculation now, sorry in advance for my extreme fantasies :D

So... Imagine Mark doing a masterclass on songwriting for masterclass.com website...

It's a cool platform and it's not like he wouldn't fit, look at their lineup:
Hans Zimmer teaches film scoring
Dustin Hoffman teaches acting
Herbie Hancock teaches jazz
Garry Kasparov teaches chess
Gordon Ramsay teaches cooking
Frank Gehry teaches design and architecture
Christina Aguilera teaches singing
Mark Knopfler teaches songwriting ??? :lol :lol

And so on! And most importantly—there's no any professor to teach songwriting yet! :lol

Okay, I know this is ridiculous speculation, but why not?

Had a good laugh at that Aguilera bit but otherwise it would be brilliant! It would be everything he could ever dream of for "officially" being separated from that goddamned guitar hero thing...   ;D

MK: "There's really no formula for it, if I knew it I would tell you". End of masterclass. ;D

You're not to far from the truth... In fact, judging by their trailers, a lot of those teachers actually can't really teach :lol
But it's another thing to love about creating process. Often masters in their craft can't explain a thing about what they do.

That's pure instinct when it comes to geniuses. They don't follow a formula.

You can't say the same about people like James Horner, Robert Lange or T Bone Burnett though. These guys as well as many others use songwriting strategies to hook people, almost an equation.
