The track consists of two full statements of the theme from "On Stranger Tides", followed by a short coda. The first statement is delicate amnd mysterious, accompanied by an arpeggio pattern and tribal wind instruments. The second statement is accompanied by a driving bassline and male choir and is althogether more powerful. The track ends with Blackbeard's six note figure.
- The ostinato rhythm heard at the beginning of the second section is the same as the opening to "He's a Pirate".
