Jeff Beck confirms joint album release date with Johnny Depp

Jeff Beck has provided fans with an update about the release of his joint album with Johnny Depp, after news of their collaboration first emerged in 2020, NME reports.

According to the report, Beck, who has been joined by Depp as a guest guitarist on his UK tour recently, told the audience at The Sage, Gateshead on the night of June 2 that the album “will be out in July”.

“I met this guy five years ago and we’ve never stopped laughing since. We actually made an album. I don’t know how it happened. It will be out in July,” The Guardian reports Beck told fans onstage.

Depp has been performing cover versions of songs on Beck’s tour including Jimi Hendrix’s ‘Little Wing’ and Marvin Gaye’s ‘What’s Going On’.

His first UK appearance with Beck was in Sheffield last Sunday (May 29) while a jury was deliberating his defamation trial against ex-wife Amber Heard, which he has since won.

The actor and musician also played with Beck the following night (Monday, May 30) at London’s Royal Albert Hall.
