Johnny Depp is prepping the release of a new album of pirate songs and has enlisted some A-list to help to put it together. The actor/musician's new album, Son of Rogue's Gallery: Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs and Chanteys, will feature appearances from Iggy Pop, Patti Smith and Courtney Love.
The 36-track double disc will also feature appearances from Tom Waits, Keith Richards, Beth Orton, Shane MacGowan, Michael Stipe, Dr. John, Marianne Faithfull and Broken Social Scene.
Pop appears on a track called "A**holes Rule the Navy," and is joined by A Hawk and a Hacksaw on the effort. Smith teams up with Depp for "The Mermaid," while Love is joined by Stipe for "Rio Grande."
Son of Rogue's Gallery: Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs and Chanteys is the follow up to the 2006 effort from Depp, Rogue's Gallery. It's due February 18.
