Watch Buffett and Paul McCartney Record “My Gummie Just Kicked In”

September 8th, 2023

Three songs from Jimmy Buffett’s upcoming album Equal Strain on All Parts are available for streaming today, including “My Gummie Just Kicked In,” a song inspired by a moment at a dinner with Paul McCartney and his wife Nancy.

Today’s premiere was inspired by a dinner party encounter involving Buffett, McCartney and his wife, Nancy. Nancy stumbled on her way to the dinner table, and when the concerned Mayor of Margaritaville asked if she was OK, she responded, “Oh, no — I’m fine. My gummie just kicked in!” The two rock stars laughed and joked that they were going to write a song after her response, and the two followed through with McCartney adding bass to the track and hanging around the studio. The end result is a song with pristine production, skillful instrumentation, a catchy hook and loads of laughter.

McCartney recounted the experience in his heartfelt tribute to Buffett following his death: “I was very happy to have played on one of his latest songs called ‘My Gummie Just Kicked In’. We had a real fun session, and he played me some of his new songs.”
