Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides features original music by Hans Zimmer and his first-time collaboration with the internationally acclaimed Mexican guitar duo Rodrigo y Gabriela. Rodrigo y Gabriela have sold over one million albums, have sold out arenas and headlined festivals worldwide.
According to Disney, the collaboration with Hans Zimmer is their first film score-an exciting and defining moment in their career. Their willingness to explore musical expression and to embrace new sounds regardless of fashion or trends, as well as their point blank refusal to be pigeonholed as any particular genre, is the very foundation of Rodrigo y Gabriela.
The Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides original motion picture soundtrack will be available wherever music is sold on May 17, 2011.
