Pirates of the Caribbean Soundtrack – Album Stream + Remix Contest

The Original Soundtrack for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides features first-time collaboration with Oscar-winning Hans Zimmer and the acclaimed guitar duo Rodrigo y Gabriela. For the fourth movie they wanted a new sound and they found a perfect combination with these musicians. “I’ve been a big fan of Mexican guitarists Rodrigo y Gabriela for years now,” said Zimmer, “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 Indaba Remix Contest launched this week, in which users are asked to remix two tracks from the soundtrack. The winning remixes will be featured on Indaba and AOL’s Spinner. And yesterday, KCRW hosted the premiere of “The Pirate That Should Not Be” – check out the blog to stream the single.

You can also stream the full soundtrack on the film’s official Facebook Page — “Like” this page to hear it.

Pre-order The Original Soundtrack on iTunes (Available May 17th)

Raphael Saadiq’s Stone Rollin’ Out Now + MP3

Stone Rollin’ – written and produced by Raphael Saadiq, who also plays bass, mellotron, keys, guitar, percussion and even drums on most of the tracks – is even more powerful, urgent and bold than The Way I See It (2008). The new songs are firmly planted in classic R&B, and nod to Saadiq’s heroes like Chuck Berry, Stevie Wonder, Little Walter and Sly Stone, with his own contemporary spin.

Stone Rollin
‘ features its share of special guests too. Robert Randolph dropped by to lay down some nasty steel guitar on “Day Dreams.” Guesting on “Just Don’t” is Larry Dunn from Earth, Wind, and Fire, plus one of Saadiq’s indie rock favorites, Yukimi Nagano from Little Dragon. Another standout track is “Good Man,” which brilliantly blends golden age soul with a killer hip hop hook, co-written and sung by upstart Taura Stinson. The new album is in stores today – get yours now!
