Shakira Writing Next Album

Live DVD/CD package due at the end of the month

March 11, 2004 12:00 AM ET

Shakira is writing songs for her next album, the follow-up to 2001's English-language breakthrough Laundry Service. An October or November release is being targeted for the new set of songs.

In the meantime, the Colombian superstar is offering Live and Off the Record on March 30th, an audio/visual documentation of last year's Tour of the Mongoose to tide fans over. The set will be packaged as a two-and-a-half-hour DVD with a ten-song bonus CD. The DVD consists of ninety minutes of Mongoose material, with tracks dating back to her 1996 debut Pies Descalzos ("Estoy Aqui"). Laundry Service and its predecessor, 1998's Donde Estan los Ladrones?, are best represented with eight and five songs on the DVD, respectively. Both the DVD and CD include Shakira's previously unreleased cover of AC/DC's "Back in Black."

The DVD will also include behind-the-scenes material from tour stops including Paris, London, Madrid, New York, Mexico and Bogota.

Song Stories

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
