Dying Sailor Sings

22 Aug 2006
Bono's rendition of 'Dying Sailor to His Shipmates' is one of the stand-out tracks on 'Rogue's Gallery: Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs and Chanteys', which hits stores worldwide today.

The album is a maverick collection of songs from a musical genre that has all but disappeared - the sea chantey. Running to 43 songs and produced by Hal Willner it has a dazzling cast-list from Bono and Sting to Nick Cave, Bryan Ferry, Lou Reed, Lucinda Williams, Rufus Wainwright and Richard Thompson.
