Mark Knopfler
Mark Knopfler, of Dire Straits fame, will release his sixth studio album Get Lucky on September 15.

Recorded at Knopfler's British Grove Studios in West London, the 11-track Get Lucky was co-produced with longtime collaborators, engineer Chuck Ainlay and keyboardist Guy Fletcher in addition to several other musicians.

The album explores a lifetime of musical roots. "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," Knopfler said. "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."
