Son of Rogues Gallery

Johnny Depp famously used Keith Richards as an inspiration for his Jack Sparrow character in Pirates of The Caribbean. Then Richards appeared in a sequel as “Sparrow”s father. Now, Depp has recruited Richards – plus Tom Waits, Iggy Pop, Patti Smith and others – for a new “pirate” album.

Son of Rogue's Gallery: Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs & Chanteys is an epic collection of sea chanteys, and will be released on Tom Waits’ Anti Records label in February 2013. Other artists include Sean Lennon, Beth Orton, Michael Stipe and Courtney Love, Todd Rundgren and Macy Gray. Keith Richards performs “Shenandoah” with Tom Waits for the album.

The album is the sequel to 'Rogue's Gallery: Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs and Chanteys from 2006. Producer Hal Willner says, “it is a very different record than volume 1. This one seems... happier? Not as much about torture, sodomy and death, which will disappoint some but, we don't need to repeat ourselves do we?”
