Mark Knopfler, the legendary maestro of strings, returns with his highly anticipated 10th studio album, "One Deep River," set for release on April 12th, 2024. As the luminary frontman of Dire Straits, Knopfler's musical accomplishments freely flow, and "One Deep River" promises to be a captivating addition to his repertoire.
The unveiling of the lead track, "Ahead of the Game," offers a tantalizing glimpse into the melodic journey that awaits listeners. With Knopfler's signature blend of poetic lyricism and masterful guitar work, each track on the album is poised to become a timeless classic, effortlessly weaving together intricate narratives and refined musical textures.
Following the critically acclaimed "Down the Road Wherever" released in 2018, "One Deep River" marks Knopfler's return to the forefront of the music scene. Available in various formats including digital, CD, cassette, and a deluxe two-LP set, giving fans a choice to experience the album in their preferred medium.
For the high-resolution spatial enthusiasts, the exclusive limited-edition Blu-ray, featuring Dolby Atmos and Hi-Res Stereo mixes, was available from the SDE Shop as part of a 2,000 copy run. If you missed the opportunity to pick this edition up, it likely can be found through third party sellers. Or, for true fans there is a super deluxe box set that offers a treasure trove of delights, featuring the standard CD and two-LP release, alongside a bonus CD and vinyl, adorned with exclusive artwork. As a special touch, the box set includes three custom guitar picks and a stunning lithograph print, ensuring that each listener is fully flowing in the magic of "One Deep River."
