Soundtrack Will Hit Stores On May 17thHans Zimmer has certainly never been any slouch, but lately, the composer seems to have been newly inspired in a way some of his other longstanding contemporaries haven't been. His work for Christopher Nolan on "The Dark Knight" and the Oscar-nominated "Inception" have been brilliantly left-of-field, while his score for "Sherlock Holmes" was inventive in ways we didn't imagine.

Soundtrack Will Hit Stores On May 17th



Hans Zimmer has certainly never been any slouch, but lately, the composer seems to have been newly inspired in a way some of his other longstanding contemporaries haven't been. His work for Christopher Nolan on "The Dark Knight" and the Oscar-nominated "Inception" have been brilliantly left-of-field, while his score for "Sherlock Holmes" was inventive in ways we didn't imagine. And it looks like Zimmer is going to continue his unique approach heading into his next big gig.

According to a press release from Walt Disney Records, Zimmer is teaming with acclaimed Mexican guitar duo Rodrigo Y Gabriela for the score for the forthcoming "Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides." With four studio albums, and two live albums under their belts, Rodrigo Y Gabriela have become unlikely worldwide stars meeting with a strong fanbase in Europe, but they've also broken through in the United States, getting play on MTV, making appearances on late night television and even playing at the White House. Musically speaking, the duo's vibrant and distinct style of playing should be breath of fresh air in the long-running franchise -- of which Zimmer has scored every film except the first -- and we're curious to hear the results of the collaboration.

The film stars Johnny Depp, Geoffrey Rush, Penelope Cruz, Ian McShane, Stephen Graham, Richard Griffiths, Keith Richards, Judi Dench, Sam Clafin and Astrid Berges-Frisby and will hit theaters this spring on May 20th. The soundtrack will arrive in stores a few days earlier on May 17th.
