They didn't play on Golden Heart either, and that is the style I would like to hear from Mark again.

No, but they had their equivalent in the form of the Irish guys.

With the mentioned instruments, I am hoping for a return to a more Celtic/Country/Folk thing.

Exactly my hope, also! And no brass please.  ;)

No, please, no. The Celtic thing has been done to death.

But if not for Celtic, then what? Blues — we've already got plenty of bluesy MK. Country? Jazz? I always want more jazz, but it's because I'm a huge jazz aficionado.

  :lol I want more MK doing his thing :) Country would be nice. Not blues as in "back in the day", but maybe as in "I think I love you too much". The brass section worked live, but I prefer to not have them on the album. I am not sure about the girls doing backing vocals. I have admired Mark for mostly steering away from it, and not least to not having female backing vocals on concerts. The only one that works for me is EmmyLou, but it depends on the song.

Reading your thoughts have lifted my spirit a bit. It is good to have some news from the studio  :) The GF forum is filled with tech questions, I feel that is a good thing and they will more likely be answered. His answer to tinkered songs, that could be both "when to stop", and the type of song, like an untouched one compared to "Back on the dancefloor" ?

GF:

"There are a few songs in this batch that were essentially one take but the majority are ‘tinkered with’. I would say we’ve played with sounds, effects and reverbs more on this album"

He can take his time and do as many overdubs and edits as he likes.  There is no pressure to perform them in a live situation either, so play Mark, play! 🎸🎸

I don't blame him, he's been there and done that, it's better and more interesting to try different things, than doing the same old stuff like some other artists seem to do.
Knopfler, Oldfield and Gilmour is all the guitar I need.

Yes of course it is but is he really trying different things?
As Cash and Diamond showed it's never too late but being the curmudgeon he is MK is relatively stuck in his ways and,of course,we love him for it.
I'd like him to try different producers but that ship has sailed so it'll be something similar which means some quality songs played rather well.
It's almost impossible to criticise that so I look forward to the new album with the documentary and perhaps a showcase or two.
