In collaboration with Matthew Sweet and Tim Robbins, Susanna is all set to be included on an upcoming compilation album produced by Johnny Depp. The trio contributed the tune “Marianne”:
Johnny Depp is releasing an album consisting of “sea shanties,” or maritime-themed songs, which features vocals from film stars Tim Robbins and Anjelica Huston and singers Courtney Love, Michael Stipe, Susanna Hoffs from the Bangles, Iggy Pop and Macy Gray.
The record is set for release on Feb. 19, 2013. It is called “Son of Rogue’s Gallery: Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs and Chanteys” and is the sequel to a similar 2006 album. The new album also includes a track with Tom Waits and Rolling Stone bassist Keith Richards, who played the father of the actor’s iconic “Pirates of the Caribbean” character, Captain Jack Sparrow, in Disney’s hit film series.
Depp co-produced the new two-disc compilation with Gore Verbinski, who directed the actor in the first three “Pirates of the Caribbean” films as well as in “Rango” and the new Disney film “The Lone Ranger,” and original producer Hal Willner, record label Anti-Records said in a statement obtained by OTRC.com.
