The song, called Rio Grande, has turned up online ahead of Son of Rogue's Gallery: Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs and Chanteys coming out on Monday.



Keith Richards and Iggy Pop are among the other big names that have recorded tracks for the compilation album.

Son of Rogue's Gallery: Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs and Chanteys is a 36 track double CD which has been put together by music producer Hal Willner with Johnny Depp and film director Gore Verbinski as producers.

Willner was inspired to do the project while he was working on Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest.

The record is a follow up to Rogue's Gallery: Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs and Chanteys, which came out in 2006.
