New from Mark Knopfler: Stream ‘Back on the Dance Floor,’ from His New Album ‘Down the Road Wherever’

Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Mark Knopfler is preparing to release his new studio album, Down the Road Wherever, on Nov. 16 (pre-order at this link). He previously previewed the album with a single titled “Good On You Son,” and he’s now followed that up with a second song.

More on the album:

Recorded by Knopfler at British Grove—his West London studio—Down The Road Wherever features 14 new songs inspired by a wide range of subjects, including Knopfler’s early days in Deptford 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.
