Music News- Mark Knopfler will follow up his moody, seafaring-focused 2012 album ‘Privateering’ with his ninth solo release that will be called ‘Tracker. Final release date is still tbd but it's due sometime in early 2015. The former Dire Straits frontman has already announced tour dates in Europe beginning in May, with more promised.
‘Privateering’ was released by Mercury Records in September 2012 in Europe, but didn't get a release for another year in the USA as Knopfler was going through a contractual dispute with Warner Bros Records. The double album, his first, became Knopfler’s highest-charting UK hit in a decade.
