Throughout their tour, Depp has joined Beck on the guitar for covers of classic hits such as Marvin Gaye‘s “What’s Going On” and Jimi Hendrix‘s “Little Wing,” as seen in videos posted from the performances. The duo also performed their 2020 collaboration titled “Isolation,” a remake of John Lennon‘s 1970s song by the same name.
The news of their upcoming album came just one day after Depp won the defamation lawsuit.
Depp filed the suit against Heard after she wrote an op-ed for The Washington Post in 2018. In the personal essay, Heard labeled herself as a “public figure representing domestic abuse.” She never mentioned Depp’s name in the piece. Depp’s lawyers argued in prior court documents that Heard “concocted the story in hopes of generating positive publicity and to advance her career.”
The documents went on to argue that Heard’s essay “depends on the central premise that Ms. Heard was a domestic abuse victim and that Mr. Depp perpetrated domestic violence against her.”
