Jimmy Buffett Shares New Take On “Delaney Talks To Statues”

Jimmy Buffett is revisiting some of his old songs. The singer just dropped a new version of the 1994 track “Delaney Talks to Statues,” one of several songs that will appear on Jimmy’s upcoming album “Songs You Don’t Know By Heart,” which drops November 27th

The album features new takes on album deep cuts. He got the idea during quarantine after fans on social media started picking deep cuts they’d want to hear Jimmy revisit. From that Jimmy and daughter Delaney launched a video series of him performing acoustic takes on those songs.

“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,” Jimmy 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.'”
