Mark Knopfler is back in his London studio this week and next working on his eighth solo album -- not counting the numerous movie soundtracks he has done.
He recently said he has a stockpile of about 60 songs to choose from and that he's more in love with songwriting than he's ever been. No word on when he plans to wrap up or release the album.
Knopfler's last album was 2012's Privateering, which didn't come out in the U.S. until this past September.
