Apparently there was at the time a contract dispute with his record label Mercury Records which was the reason for the delay, finally in September of 2013 it magically appeared.

Music critics from around the world must of had a CD party of this album, they all agreed this was Mark’s best work yet as a solo artist musically and lyrically.

As in his previous albums, Mark predominately used acoustic guitar, however; on ‘Privateering’ he opened the doors back up for the frequent use of the electric guitar.
