Interview with Delaney Buffett

Delaney Buffett is a special guest on The Paul Leslie Hour. If there was one good thing about 2020, it is the “Song You Don’t Know By Heart” video series. It’s been one of the audio visual media events of the year.

For singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett, the concept was simple and unprecedented. He would tell the story behind one of his lesser-known songs and then perform it “unplugged.” The director and mysterious woman behind the project is filmmaker Delaney Buffett.

Talk about an interesting and thought-provoking interview. At times profound and other times more entertaining, it was great to get to know Delaney Buffett. Watch the video interview right here on The Paul Leslie Hour.

Listen to “Delaney Talks to Statues” from the upcoming album

From Rolling Stone: Hear Jimmy Buffett Reimagine Classic Deep Cut ‘Delaney Talks to Statues’

Jimmy Buffett has released a new version of his 1994 song, “Delaney Talks to Statues,” from his upcoming album, Songs You Don’t Know by Heart, out November 27th via Mailboat Records.

The reimagined song, as well as the rest of Songs You Don’t Know by Heart, was borne out of a video series Buffett and his daughter, Delaney, launched during the coronavirus quarantine. On social media, fans had begun chatting about what Buffett deep cuts they’d like to hear the musician revisit, and soon Delaney began filming her father performing acoustic versions of the songs fans were most eager to hear.

While the performances in those videos were bare-bones acoustic renditions, the versions on Songs You Don’t Know by Heart — a nod to Buffett’s 1985 greatest hits comp Songs You Know by Heart — feature some additional instrumentation. Buffett’s acoustic guitar remains at the heart of each track, as the new version of “Delaney Talks to Statutes” illustrates, but there’s some tidy drumming, bass and plenty of sweet harmonies to flesh it out.

“It’s been a large silver lining to spend this time with Delaney revisiting these songs and having the time to recall the inspirations behind them,” Buffett tells Rolling Stone. “We now actually do know the songs we didn’t know by heart, steered by our fans’ love of songs beyond the ‘Big 12.’”

Songs You Don’t Know by Heart was produced by Buffett’s long-time Coral Reefer Band bandmate Mac McAnally. It also features the group’s guitarist Peter Mayer and Eric Darken on percussion.

A review of “Songs You Don’t Know By Heart”

Paul Leslie has a review of Jimmy Buffett’s video series: “Songs You Don’t Know By Heart — A Series of Storytelling & Songs

For the faithful, they know these songs by heart. Storytelling is at the forefront of what he does, and his ability to generate a sense of wonder with his songs is unparalleled. If you ever needed proof, just witness him in concert. Whether performing spontaneously at a bar in Key West or some beach somewhere, or the way most people experience him, at a sold-out amphitheater on some summer day, year after year. You’ll no doubt see the crowd hanging onto every word. Jimmy Buffett is the ultimate storyteller.
