Rolling Stone Article mentions new album Buffet Hotel

The new issue of Rolling Stone (June 11th issue) has a short article ““Recession, Trip to Africa inspire new Jimmy Buffett album“. The article mentions a new album tentatively titled “Buffet Hotel” (with the second “T” left off) and named after an African “train station/whorehouse” he saw in Bamako. The album will be released later this year. Jimmy talks about his new songs and trip to Africa, as well as other new songs he might play on tour later this year.

Nadirah Shakoor’s New Album

From Nadirah Shakoor: Well my friends I finally do have an official release date for “Nod to the Storyteller” of October 14, 2008! Who knew there would be so many little details to tend to? The art work has been the most time consuming. What do you think of the cover?

I must say that I am very proud of this particular collection of songs. Mr Buffett gave me the twinkling of the eyes smile after he listened (whew!) and I hope you all feel the same especially since you helped choose the music.

Some audio clips from album “Nod to the Storyteller” are now available:
Creola
Making Music for Money
When the War is Over” (featuring Jimmy Buffett)
Frenchman for the Night
Wonder Why You Ever Go Home
Let Him Go” (a song by Mac McAnally)

We will be celebrating the release at my Las Vegas Margaritaville show Friday October 24th, 2008 from 9pm until and of course you are all invited.

Again thank you all for showing so much Love and Support.
