CLI mplayer Shuffle Music Directory & Info?


Does anyone here know how to configure mplayer in the command line to not only shuffle a directory of music but display the "now playing" info with each song change as well?

As of right now, I am able to shuffle my music directory with the following code:

find ~/Music/ | mplayer -shuffle -playlist -> /dev/null

I am running Debian GNU/Linux Squeeze on an x86_64 laptop.

My thanks to anyone who can help me figure this out!
