After legal battle with Amber Heard, Johnny Depp and Jeff Beck announce new joint album, ’18’

Fresh off his legal battle with his ex-wife, Johnny Depp has announced that he and legendary guitarist Jeff Beck will release an album

The duo's 13-track album is titled 18 and will drop on July 15. They said they titled the album after the creative outburst they felt working together

"We would joke about how we felt 18 again so that just became the album title, too," Beck said in a statement

The album contains covers of The Velvet Underground's Venus In Furs, the Everly Brothers' ballad Let It Be Me 

Depp, long a member of the rock group Hollywood Vampires with Alice Cooper and Joe Perry, started recording with Beck in 2019

Earlier this month, a jury sided with Depp in his defamation lawsuit against ex-wife Amber Heard

It awarded the Pirates of the Caribbean actor more than $10 million and vindicating his allegations
