“His far-ranging musical sensibility makes Willner the perfect man for this job…”
—Philadelphia Inquirer

“…relevant and underappreciated folk music.”—Chicago Tribune

The new track “Shenandoah” off of the highly anticipated Son of Rogues Gallery: Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs & Chanteys, produced by Hal Willner, is streaming at: [link]. Of the song, which features Tom Waits and Keith Richards, Willner notes, “Each time I have managed to maneuver Waits and Richards into a studio over the last 25 years or so, it always results in one for the history books. With ‘Shenandoah’ they collaborate and there is no word in the English language to describe it…as good as music gets.”

The compilation two-disc recording of sea shanties will be released February 19 on Anti-Records and is executive produced by Johnny Depp and Gore Verbinski, featuring Tom Waits, Keith Richards, Iggy Pop, Nick Cave, Patti Smith, Sean Lennon and many more. The album is a follow up to Willner’s 2006 production, Rogues Gallery: Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs and Chanteys (Anti-), which The New York Times praised as “a strong album with heart as well as ideas” and Entertainment Weekly hailed “a revelatory folk-song collection with the sea in the leading role.” See below for track listing.

Best known for his tribute records, covering the music of Thelonious Monk, Kurt Weill and Harold Arlen among others, Willner came up with the idea for Rogues Gallery compilations with actor Depp and director Verbinski while on the set of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest (second installment in the movie saga).
