Jeff Beck And Johnny Depp Have Shared A New Song

After months of trial and endless talk about a famous fight, you may have an overdose of everything Johnny Depp… In this case, stop reading right there. However, if you are curious about Depp’s musical side, take a look below, because the song that he and Jeff Beck have just shared is worth your time.

“This Is A Song For Miss Hedy Lamarr” is a nice pop ballad with emotive cello strings and a strong hook in the chorus, followed by Jeff Beck’s Pink Floyd-esque guitar solo. This is the lead single off their collaborative album “18,” set for a release on July 15. The video below was probably filmed during one of their recent shows in Europe where Depp has joined Beck after his very publicized defamation lawsuit against ex-wife Amber Heard.

Jeff Beck and Johnny Depp have been close friends since they met in 2016 and they decided to record this new album over the following three years. “When Johnny and I started playing together, it really ignited our youthful spirit and creativity,” Beck said in a statement. “We would joke about how we felt 18 again so that just became the album title too.” “18” is mostly a cover album that touches on everything from Beach Boys to Marvin Gaye, Killing Joke, the Velvet Underground, and John Lennon, but also includes some original songs penned by Depp: “This Is a Song for Miss Hedy Lamarr” and “Sad Motherfuckin’ Parade.” “I was blown away by it,” Beck said of the song in a statement. “That song is one of the reasons I asked him to make an album with me.” Depp also added, “It’s an extraordinary honor to play and write music with Jeff, one of the true greats and someone I am now privileged enough to call my brother.”

The trial may be over, but people are still discussing the aftermath everywhere on social media, and you may have noticed that plenty of mainstream media are still calling Heard a victim of domestic violence, they just don’t want to let it go… Why? I cannot comprehend why but it is completely shameful and an insult to everyone with a brain who has followed the trial even from afar.

But this leads to the choice of the subject of the present song: a woman, but not any woman, Hedy Lamarr. Few people know that the glamorous Hollywood star had the look and the brain. She not only became a great actress known for her roles in “Algiers,” “Lady of the Tropics,” ”White Cargo,” and ”Samson and Delilah,” but she also was an inventor, and, in 1942, she and composer George Antheil developed a technology that has become a key component of wireless data systems, known as “frequency-hopping“: “the current basis for the spread spectrum radio systems used in the products of over 40 companies manufacturing items ranging from cell phones to wireless networking systems.”

It’s certainly interesting that Johnny Depp has chosen to honor a woman whose contribution to science was ignored by the world. A way After all this “misogynistic” nonsense brouhaha, this man is singing: “This is a song for Ms. Hedy Lamarr/Erased by the world that made her a star.” Good for him!

Jeff Beck and Johnny Depp will continue their month-long tour of Europe starting June 19.
