Click here to listen to the Michael Stipe–Courtney Love duet “Rio Grande,” from the forthcoming Son of Rogues Gallery compilation. NPR is streaming the entire pirate-themed collection here. (And yes, Johnny Depp is on it.)
The most intriguing-sounding contribution to this Johnny Depp-helmed pirate-themed compilation? The Courtney Love/Michael Stipe duet. Son of Rogue’s Gallery is out February 19; full tracklist here.
I just saw some post of Courtney Love, Michael Stipe and Patti Smith. Michael Stipe was credited as “some random old hipster guy.” Come on, man. If you don’t know who Stipe is, go throw yourself off of a bridge.
