Jimmy Buffett Plans to Release New Album
In addition, Jimmy Buffett has stayed busy during COVID-19 quarantine revisiting some of his old songs.
Instead of playing his most popular hits like “Margaritaville,” Buffett has played lesser-known tunes such as “Little Miss Magic” and “I Have Found Me a Home.”
Consequently, the project has inspired a new album “Songs You Don’t Know By Heart.” It gives Buffett fans a chance to hear songs they might not when they see the artist on tour. In addition, videos of Buffett’s performances have been directed by his daughter, Delaney.
Buffett fans can also pre-order the album now. Further, the album includes 15 songs. A few are “The Captain and the Kid,” “Death of An Unpopular Poet,” “Twelve Volt Man” and “Peanut Butter Conspiracy.”
According to his website, Buffett has tour dates scheduled beginning in April 2021.
