If I could choose one song from the "unreleased" songs we know about it, it would be Two Skinny Kids.
Please check out my MK/DS forum:

Knopfler, Oldfield and Gilmour is all the guitar I need.

I remember that Guy said many years ago that "Bonafide" (stp sessions unreleased song) and "Bonfire night" (get lucky sessions unreleased son) were very good.

I dunno, Mark has a history of releasing songs written decades before the release. Songs like Rüdiger, Secondary Waltz, and especially One More Matinee which he wrote, in his own words, in the late 60s. And so, any old song has a really huge chance of appearing on the new record. Mark is a Slow Learner!

It's true. For example Planet Of New Orleans a draft of this recording is from 1979, but Mark rarely looks back.

When I think about the upcoming album a variety of songs he has written over lockdown and ones written years before come to my mind.
Sooner or later we will know.
This is all the heaven we've got, right here where we are.

The only topics he could write about over lockdown are ones of death and misery!  I hope he unearths some gems from his archives.

Utterly ridiculous.
Books,tv,internet,family and friends could all have easily influenced any new songs he has written.

Come on, dmg, not everything is death and misery!    We have Local Hero music to look forward to and I'm sure the new album will be a gem!   I can hardly wait!    :)

......also there is a new addition to the Knopfler family.   His daughter has a new whippet puppy that MK could write about!    :)

TV is just repeats because so many shows cannot be filmed and news is all about the virus.  Family and friends cannot be visited due to lockdown regulations.  Books is likely to be an inspiration once more, granted.
