Jimmy Buffett's New Album, "Songs from St. Somewhere," Debuts at #4 on "Billboard" 200

Mailboat RecordsJimmy Buffett's 28th studio effort, Songs from St. Somewhere, debuted at #4 on the Billboard 200 after selling 55,000 copies.  The ranking makes the record tied for the second-highest-charting album of the singer/songwriter's long career.

Two other Buffett albums also reached the fourth slot on the Billboard albums tally -- 1996's Banana Wind and 2006's Take the Weather with You -- while Jimmy topped the chart in 2004 with License to Chill.  Buffett's best-selling album to date is his 1985 hits compilation, Songs You Know by Heart, which has sold more than 7 million copies in the U.S.

Meanwhile, Jimmy has just released a new video for "I Want to Go Back to Cartagena," one of the tunes from Songs from St. Somewhere.  The clip features live and studio footage of Buffett duetting with Colombian singer/actress Fanny Lu in both English and Spanish.
