Buffett “in no hurry” to make new album

June 4th, 2008

Billboard has an interview with Jimmy Buffett: “Buffett Busy With Live DVD, Tour, Kids Book”. He talks about how he’s been writing songs, but is not in any hurry to put out a new album:

Buffett is developing albums for younger artists, including Coral Reefer Band backup singer Nadirah Shakoor, for his Mailboat label. And his Year of Still Here Tour starts tomorrow at Lakewood Amphitheatre in Atlanta.

As for that next album, the follow-up to 2006’s “Take the Weather With You,” Buffett says that “the time it takes to write a book kind of produces an offshoot of you [wanting] to go back to something else.”

He adds that he’s been “listening to different things that inspire me musically, but I’m in no hurry to do (an album). I am writing songs; it’ll be interesting to see if I wait and get a collection of 12 of them together to do an album or go do four and put ’em online or something. The delivery systems now … it’s very interesting how you can put stuff out there, so we’ll see what feels like the best way to do it.”
