Teaming up with guitarists Rodrigo y Gabriela, Zimmer sought a more Latin atmosphere for the newest 'Pirates' film. "We have Penélope Cruz playing Angelica, who's Spanish, so I felt that there could be some Latin influences in the score for 'On Stranger Tides,'" Zimmer said in a release.
The song features a marching drum tapping away in the background, saw-like string arrangements cutting away with the dueling guitarists flying over the top, buzzing like elegant bees. "I've been a big fan of Mexican guitarists Rodrigo y Gabriela for years now," Zimmer continued. "And I asked them if they wanted to come and play with us. We've been having a really great time with them being part of the musical world this film gets to inhabit."
The soundtrack will also feature remixes by Ki: Theory and Photek and trumpet contributions from jazz legend Arturo Sandoval. The 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides' soundtrack is due out May 17 via Disney. The film will hit theaters on May 20.
