Although I have enjoyed his last two solo albums, they have been just ok in my opinion, but I am very excited to hear what Mark Knopfler has up his sleeve with his forthcoming album Get Lucky. The album will be released on September 15 with a tour to follow. His work with Dire Straits is absolutely brilliant. One of my favorite albums of all time is Making Movies.
Billboard has the scoop on the new album and tour here.
