"...he does move in mysterious ways"

I like that statement :)

Actually, look carefully to the question, and the answer:

Q:– for it to be ready for a late 2023 release does that mean a band session in early 2023? Can we expect a diary? (Pretty please)

Will have to hold my breathe a bit longer. I’m sure it will be worth the wait. Thanks for all you do and I hope Mark, yourself and families have a good Christmas break.


A: Since we are still recording, that makes sense but I’m not aware of any date or strategy for scheduled release. We are indeed recording additional songs, this week in fact.


The question talks about a band session early 2023 and Guy says it makes sense as they are recording. I understand he means MK and him.

I think the 'makes sense since we are still recording'' part is an answer to the 'late 2023 release'. And he says they are indeed recording the additional songs, this week... But yes, it's a typical Guy answer  ;) So nobody knows until somebody asks...
2019 shows to come:

I’ve just returned from London and another week of recording with Mark Knopfler & Co.  It was great seeing everyone again, making music at British Grove studios, having lots of laughs, a million cups of tea and maybe just a few martinis.  Everybody in great shape and high spirits.  In the process we put another clutch of great songs in the can.

Nice!


But the cost of making Mark's albums, though  :o  Since he's not exactly selling albums like Taylor Swift, I wonder if he has to chip in himself to pay for it. And no touring in sight either. No wonder he's selling expensive knick-knacks online!

Ha ha.  Yeah, that maybe explains all the re-releases and toys with old recordings for mega bucks.  I can't imagine they'll be selling many of these BIA guitars though, hence the high cost.

With the end of touring and a decline in album sales, I think it's inevitable we will see a resurgence of the Dire Straits catalog, because that's where the money is.
Prepare for releases of Amsterdam 1978, Paris 1981 and Dublin 1991  ;D

Richard Bennett just sent a message. He just returned after a week of recording in British Grove with Mark and Co, a great pleasure to see everyone again ..

Alan Clark once said that Mark has about 20 songs ready for each album. I am very happy :)

Wow, great update by Richard. Now I'm really hoping for a double album.
This is all the heaven we've got right here where we are in our shangri-la.

I don't want a double album. Cherry pick the 10-12 best songs, and make it a killer 50-minute album.

And add a bonus cd for a special edition with the rest ;)
