The Jimmy Buffett Estate has released three new songs from the late musician’s forthcoming album, Equal Strain on All Parts.
“Bubbles Up,” “Like My Dog” and “My Gummie Just Kicked In” are available now digitally.
The legendary singer-songwriter, known for his song “Margaritaville” along with his laid-back island style, passed away on September 1. He was 76.
Buffett, who signed to Sun Records before his death, will have his final album, Equal Strain on All Parts, released later this year on November 3.
The title is inspired by Buffett’s grandfather’s description of a good nap. The record, co-produced by longtime Coral Reefers, Michael Utley and Mac McAnally, features well-known friends, including Paul McCartney, Emmylou Harris, Lennie Gallant, Angelique Kidjo, and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band.
“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. One, in particular, I loved was the song, ‘Bubbles Up.’ And I told him that not only was the song great but the vocal was probably the best I’ve heard him sing ever,” McCartney shared on X, formerly known as Twitter.
The Beatles legend added, “He turned a diving phrase that is used to train people underwater into a metaphor for life when you’re confused and don’t know where you are just follow the bubbles – they’ll take you up to the surface and straighten you out right away.”
