Mark Knopfler’s upcoming album Get Lucky is scheduled to be released on September 15. You can view the official press release for the album here, which includes the following information about the autobiographical nature of the album:
The autobiographical thread running through Get Lucky is exemplified by the title track. “The first itinerant person I ever met would sing in soul bands in winter, then work part-time in fairgrounds or ‘go pick fruit down south’ when the weather turned warm,” explains Knopfler. “I was about 15 years old, stuck in school and envious. ‘Get Lucky’ came from him and other traveling characters I went on to meet in places I’d find myself working short-term, like farms, warehouses, building sites, before I got lucky with my songs.”
The track list for the album is as follows:
You Can’t Beat The House
Before Gas & TV
Cleaning My Gun
The Car Was The One
So Far From The Clyde
Piper To The End
