New 2024 Studio Album • SDE Exclusive • Dolby Atmos Mix • Bonus tracks • #18 in the SDE Surround Series • Limited to 2,000 units worldwide

Mark Knopfler will release One Deep River, his 10th solo studio album in April and amongst the formats will be an SDE-exclusive blu-ray audio, No 18 in the ongoing SDE Surround Series.

Released on his own British Grove label via EMI One Deep River features 12 unhurriedly elegant new Knopfler songs, and his warm Geordie vocal tone, his poetic storytelling lyrics and deft, richly melodic guitar playing are all present and correct and as dazzling as ever.

The SDE-exclusive blu-ray features the album, plus five bonus tracks, in immersive Dolby Atmos and the highest resolution stereo 192/24. Neither are available anywhere else on a physical product.

As ever, this will ship with a free, collectible SDE Surround Series Slipcase

The blu-ray features no video and will be region-free so international fans won't have any issues playing the disc. It also ships with a free, collectible SDE Surround Series slipcase.

This SDE-exclusive blu-ray of One Deep River will be released on 12 April 2024 via British Grove/EMI. It's limited to just 2,000 units.

Although I haven't seen an e-mail from the SDE shop yet, it's already available and I quickly got my order in.
There's also a box set on the MK store, which however doesn't include a Blu-Ray, but a bonus vinyl LP with four songs not on the 2CD or the Blu-Ray. Both 2CD and BD have the same 17-track tracklist; the regular CD and the double LP only have 12 tracks.
Bit of a front centric mix but the sound quality is good. Will sound even better in lossless on the Blu Ray.... Missed an opportunity not to put the backing vocals in the rears...

The Atmos mix is by Guy Fletcher, who made the Atmos mix of Brothers In Arms sound far less interesting than the fantastic previous 5.1 mix by Chuck Ainley.
