Depp has joined Beck for many of the shows of his recent UK tour, just after appearing in court for the high-profile defamation trial.
On 2 June, Beck told his audience at The Sage, Gateshead last night (June 2) that the album will be released this July. “I met this guy five years ago and we’ve never stopped laughing since,” Beck said. “We actually made an album. I don’t know how it happened. It will be out in July.”
The pair’s joint album was first announced in April 2020 by Depp in an Instagram post. He described Beck as “my dear friend and my brother… one of my all time guitar heroes”.
Depp also plays in the supergroup Hollywood Vampires alongside Alice Cooper and Aerosmith’s Joe Perry.
