Johnny Depp Sings About the Downside of Fame on ‘This is a Song for Miss Hedy Lamarr’ ft. Jeff Beck

‘This is a Song for Miss Hedy Lamarr’ arrives as one of the tracks of the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ actor and the English guitarist’s joint album called ’18’.

AceShowbizJohnny Depp and Jeff Beck have unleashed new music. On “This is a Song for Miss Hedy Lamarr”, the “Pirates Of the Caribbean” actor sings about the downsie of fame as he’s joined by the English guitarist.

“Erased by the same world who made her a star. The light of her being, her exotic allure/ Was torn at the seams for daring to dream/ it’s so hard to speak when you’re frozen in scream,” the 59-year-old actor sings. “Feels like a dream, but it’s life and it’s death.”

“I don’t believe, I can’t believe, I won’t believe humans anymore/ It’s so hard to talk when no one will hear, and everyone stares as you quiver in fear,” the father of Lily-Rose Depp continues. “Stripped of belief, a thief is a thief/ Who’s going to stand up to give you relief/ Of all dispossessed, it’s so hard to digest/ You’ve no right to sit down if you’re nobody’s guest.”

Johnny has been joining Jeff on some shows of the latter’s U.K. tour. The two of them will also drop a joint album called “18” next month. Jeff previously told the crowd, “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 pair previously released a cover of John Lennon‘s song “Isolation”, which they played during the gig and they also fronted covers of Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On” and Jimi Hendrix’s “Little Wing”.
