Wouldn’t you know it. He had one more ship in the harbor left to sail. And long-time fans of Jimmy Buffett can raise their glasses to toast his send-off.
The album Buffett completed before the “Margaritaville” singer’s death on Sept. 1, 2023 will be released on the Sun label November 3, with three songs “Bubbles Up,” “My Gummie Just Kicked In” and “Like My Dog” dropping ahead of the debut of the album — Equal Strain on All Parts. Among its 14 songs are collaborations with Paul McCartney, Emmylou Harris, Angelique Kidjo and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band.
Buffet died of Merkel cell skin cancer.
The album’s tracks — see the complete list below — includes a cover of Bob Dylan’s 1976 song “Mozambique,” with Emmylou Harris, who sang on the Dylan original, joining Buffett for the cover.
McCartney plays bass on “My Gummie Just Kicked In” (listen below) and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band features on “University of Bourbon Street.” “Ti Punch Café” features Angelique Kidjo and “Portugul or PEI” features Lennie Gallant and Will Kimbrough.
The album was produced by Michael Utley and Mac McAnally of Buffett’s Coral Reefer Band.
