Johnny Depp didn't waste any time getting back to "normal" life after winning his defamation case against ex-wife Amber Heard on Wednesday (June 1). The next day (June 2), the actor shared the stage with Jeff Beck during a set in Gateshead, England, where the guitarist divulged that he and Depp were releasing a joint album next month.
“I’m going to take this opportunity to tell you that I met this guy five years ago and we haven’t stopped laughing since,” Beck said in fan-shot footage of the concert. “We actually made an album. I don’t know how it happened. It will be out in July.”
No other information about the album was revealed; however, fans in attendance were able to get a taste of what to expect. The set began with Depp performing an unreleased track about the famed actress and inventor Hedy Lamarr. The duo also covered Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On,” Jimi Hendrix’s “Little Wing,” and John Lennon’s “Isolation" — a song they officially released in 2020.

Depp has been playing in various bands for decades. His most well-known project is Hollywood Vampires, which released their sophomore album Rise in 2019.
