    Musician and songwriter Mark Knopfler has signed a new deal with UMG and will release Privateering via Verve on September 10, effectively ending a 35-year relationship with Warner Bros. Records.

    The new music is Knopfler's first double album of new music in his entire recording career. "The older I get, the more I want to write," Knopfler notes. "I'm enjoying the process more than ever, writing, recording and playing live, I enjoy all of it. I'm almost tripping over songs."

    Will you privateer with Mark Knopfler?
