Buffett’s new album to be called “Life on the Flip Side”

From Keys Weekly: “Buffett starts 2020 with impromptu show at Margaritaville

The whispered rumors started around midday on Jan. 18. They gathered steam throughout the afternoon and were proven true by 9 p.m., when Jimmy Buffett ducked under his guitar strap and nodded with a smile to members of his Coral Reefer Band.

The Margaritaville mogul took the stage at his own bar on Key West’s Duval Street for his first live performance of 2020.

Buffett and the band had been in Key West recording a new album, “Life on the Flip Side,” for release later this year.

The band played to a packed house of surprised tourists and in-the-know locals who had been on the receiving end of the day’s rumors. 

With songs that captured Key West’s simpler times, Buffett serenaded sun-loving locals with the lyrics that lured them here so many years ago, and gave the disbelieving visitors the vacation memories of a lifetime.
