First album in fourteen years.

Post by Showlistener2018 »

I know when some artists are mentioned as having first album in 12/13/14 however many years they're usually saying original songs. I wonder if that's the case with Jimmy. I know he's had 3 studio albums since Take the Weather with You but I wonder if this new one will have the most original songs in lots of years?

Jimmy has been the major contributor of songs on his 2 most recent albums:

Songs from St. Somewhere released in 2013 he wrote 12 out the 16tracks on the album

Buffet Hotel released in 2009 he wrote 9 out of the 12 songs on that album

Buffett Hotel was a "terrible" release of tunes, in my opinion. However, Songs from St. Somewhere was another story....Not sure where the comment of 14 years comes from....but if it will be another 14 years, we best be prepared on this being his last.........I hope not....

Buffett Hotel he wrote more of the album then he did Songs from St. Somewhere. In fact Buffett Hotel he wrote close to all. Wonder if this will be that one. Maybe it'll have that billing of first original material in a decade.

I'm really hoping for original songs and not any more cover songs.

That'd be the case it'd be the first time in TWENTY TWO years that he's written a whole album.

I don’t think he will break this streak as it is my understanding they cut “The World is what you make it” for the new album. They played this I think in almost every set this year. I like it. When is the new album coming out? I imagine before the new tour kicks off...

Hopefully ONE song not written by Buffett (first time since Buffett Hotel that that'd have happened)
