EDITORS’ NOTES

Privateering collects just about all the sounds that Mark Knopfler has explored throughout his lengthy career—a musical Limoges Box of piercing blues, rootsy Americana, radio-ready rock, and even some Celtic music. The latter comes in on "Haul Away," an earthy track with layered lyrics about a mysterious night at sea, while “Radio City Serenade” opens with the kind of sweet piano intro worthy of an Ella Fitzgerald tune, with horns and guitar soon joining in to reveal a tender, folky love song.
