Article on Buffett’s New Album

We’ve told you that a new Jimmy Buffett album is in the works. The Examiner has an article on the upcoming release:

When Jimmy Buffett says it’s always five o’clock somewhere, you better believe he means it. In fact, he traveled all the way to Timbuktu to have happy hour with a group of nomadic Tuareg musicians at the Festival in the Desert, an annual gathering in Africa.

It was here that he gained inspiration to start writing, which would end up becoming his newest album that is slated for release by the end of the year. Buffett hasn’t had a new album since 2006, and says that the reason for this new burst of creative energy is because his trek to Africa was one of the best musical experiences of his life. This inspiration is paired up with his point of view on the current recession, intertwining his usual upbeat outlook with some satire and sarcasm.

For example, the two most popular new songs are “A Lot To Drink About”, (which has lyrics about Madoff taking off with money) and “Surfing in a Hurricane”. The names describe the current economical state perfectly, and Buffett feels it’s the perfect way to appeal to his long-standing loyal fans.

On Wednesday night’s “The Daily Show” on Comedy Central, Jon Stewart referenced Jimmy Buffett concerts and Parrrotheads in an interview with Justin Fox, author of “The Myth of the Rational Market”. They were discussing the financial markets and the herd mentality of those working in the markets:

Fox: A lot of times it’s actually lots of really rational, smart people all working together in vast herds…

Stewart: …become delusional

Fox: Yea

Stewart: It’s like a Jimmy Buffett concert.

Fox: I’ve never been, but ok.

Stewart: You meet the people individually… very nice, but you get them all together and they put on the parrot hats and you’re like “I’m not investing with you idiots”.
