The title hails from Buffett's cover of "Weather With You," a hit for Crowded House in 1991. First single "Bama Breeze" was serviced to country radio in late August. The video, which concerns the effects of Hurricane Ivan on the Gulf Coast area where Buffett spent his youth, was partially shot at the FireDog Saloon in Bay St. Louis, Miss., a bar that was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina.
The album reporetedly features guest spots from Mark Knopfler (who penned "Whoop De Doo"), Gomez, Little Feat's Bill Payne, Sonny Landreth and ukulele virtuoso Jake Shimabakuro, who's been a part of Buffett's touring band for the past few years.
Although Buffett is presently off the road, the singer will perform at a Sept. 19 fundraiser for Texas gubernational candidate Kinky Friedman.
