The 43-track double album was inspired by the ’Pirates Of The Caribbean’ films and was conceived by Gore Verbinski director of the forthcoming ’Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest’ with help from actor Johnny Depp.

Rufus Wainwright does ’Lowlands Away’ with mother Kate McGarrigle, Jarvis Cocker sings ’A Drop of Nelson’s Blood’, while Antony from Antony & The Johnsons duets with Roxy Music legend Bryan Ferry on ’Lowlands Low’ and Lou Reed sings ’Leave Her Johnny’.
