Mark Knopfler releases his ninth solo album today (Friday).
Down the Road Wherever contains 14 songs covering a wide range of subjects, including his "early days with Dire Straits, a stray soccer fan lost in a strange town, the compulsion of a musician hitching home through the snow and a man out of time in his local greasy spoon diner."
