Yes, they probably do, but surely there is plenty of time for a release this year, even more so because there doesn't appear to be a tour to organise either.

And that's the reason why is more likely they could delay it as much as they want or need, as they don't have to play a tour to promote it, so there is nothing in the calendar pushing them.

There is the Local Hero musical yet to be staged in London, and that might be something we already know that can delay them, but until Daniel Evans take his position at the Royal Shakespeare Company I think in late April, they are not doing anything about it. I truly hope that they could have the mixes of the new record finished so whatever they have to do is done, and won't interfere.

Same with that Dire Straits thing Guy said he's going to mix and can't say a thing. If it's something big like unreleased material, or special boxes or whatever, depending on how much work it would need, they might want to release it on Christmas, and that would coincide with the MK record, which is not a good idea commercially talking... And if that happens, I bet the record company would rather release the DS stuff first.

That's true.

When can we expect some news about the releasedate for the new MK album. Do they give the date months before releasing or just a couple of weeks??

Usually months before, when someone finds the album somewhere online..

Last update by MKNEWS says the record will be out later 2023, obviously that can change, I think it would, but as official, that's what it is:

18th November 2022:

With respect, all of those are ancient :)

Nowadays they release earlier as people can buy as Christmas gifts, although as hardly anyone buys physical products that maybe doesn't matter so much nowadays.

I think I've seen many records by very important artists being released in December, can't name none of them right now as I don't like or care most of them and I didn't search in order to write this, just trusted my memory.

But I'm sure some of you if are curios enough can search in the right sites and see releases planned for December last years, or even for this.

Not really a huge time for releases by major artists last year:

it depends when you are buying your christmas gifts  ;D
many people go to stores just few days before christmas, so albums released let say in mid december can make good christmas gifts  :)

David Crosby, Sam Fender, Nina Hagen, Weezer, Sugarbabes... these are the ones that rings a bell, but, plenty of people that probably the younger people would recognize.

David Crosby and Sam Fender are live albums so not really a big deal, Weezer is an EP. It doesn't seem to be a time when people want to release major studio albums.

From a general point of view you are right but some exceptions remains.
Some old artists in France are still selling  way more physical records than digital.
And I expect that being the case in other European countries.

For the US I would not say this a very different market.

The point in Mark Knopfler case is does he still sells a lot?
He has remained an attractive live act but I can imagine that figure sales for his latest solo efforts were declining.
I did not see these topping the charts the way the first two did.

The haters are those who write shit
