Johnny Cash's song "Ain't No Grave" provides the soundtrack to a new Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales preview that aired during Super Bowl LI on Sunday night (Feb. 5).
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is set for release on May 26; readers can press play above to watch the trailer.

A traditional gospel song, "Ain't No Grave" was written by Claude Ely. The song appears on Cash's American VI: Ain't No Grave album, which was released in 2010, posthumously. Most of the songs on the record were recorded during the final months of Cash's life, in the same sessions in which Cash recorded the tracks for American V: A Hundred Highways, which was released in 2006.
