SOUNDTRACK TO FEATURE FIRST TIME COLLABORATION WITH HANS ZIMMER AND RODRIGO Y GABRIELA
SOUNDTRACK SET FOR RELEASE ON WALT DISNEY RECORDS MAY 17th
After months of hints and rumours we can now confirm that one of the summer’s most highly anticipated blockbuster movies, “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” will features original music by Academy Award-winning composer Hans Zimmer and Rod and Gab.
The score for Pirates of the Caribbean 4 brings together one of the most respected and sought-after composers (an Academy Award winner with a further eight additional Oscar nominations for films such as Gladiator, Inception, The Dark Knight, Batman Begins to name but a few) and the premier guitar playing duo in the world – Rodrigo Y Gabriela.
Speaking on the creative process Zimmer recently said, 'The way we’re working, the three of us are sitting in a room, I play average keyboards and they play brilliant guitars and we’re writing cues together. There’s a force, a ferocity, about their sound.'
You will be able to hear the fruits of their labours when Walt Disney Records release the soundtrack for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides on May 17, 2011.
The movie, once again starring Johnny Depp as captain Jack Sparrow, joined for this outing by Penelope Cruz, Geoffrey Rush and Ian McShane, will follow in movie theaters on May 20, 2011.
