PIRATE BALLADS, SEA SONGS & CHANTEYS Music Producer HAL WILLNER, Verbinski (director of Pirates of the Carribbean) and Johnney Depp in collaboration with ANTI RECORDS. “Due out August 22, the [two-CD] collection is filled with contemporary reinterpretations of songs from a genre of music that has all but disappeared.” The ocean.
