Johnny Depp hidden talent disclosed after Amber Heard defamation trial

British guitarist Jeff Beck has disclosed the hidden talent of his old friend

Hollywood actor Johnny Depp as they are set to release their album on July 15.

The 13-track record entitled "18" is largely comprised of covers, the statement

From Depp and Beck said, with music from artists including the Beach Boys, Marvin Gaye and the Velvet Underground.

The duo met in 2016, bonding "over cars and guitars" before Beck,

77, said he began to appreciate "Depp´s serious songwriting skills and ear for music."

The musician, who is currently on tour in Europe with the Pirates of the Caribbean

actor as a special guest, said, "When Johnny and I started playing together, it

really ignited our youthful spirit and creativity. We would joke about how we felt 18 again, so that just became the album title too."
