Earlier this month, Depp and and Jeff Beck shared a new cover of The Velvet Underground’s ‘Venus In Furs’.

Depp made headlines last month (May 29) when he was a surprise guest at Beck’s show in Sheffield. The pair performed covers of John LennonMarvin Gaye and Jimi Hendrix, and the actor went on to join Beck on stage at a handful of other gigs despite awaiting the verdict in his defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard at the time.

The pair are set to release a collaborative album called ’18’ next month. The album was recorded over the past three years and is due out on July 15.

Elsewhere, Depp thanked fans for their support in a message on social media after winning his defamation trial against ex-wife Heard.

Following the ruling Depp was awarded $10million (£8million) in compensatory damages and $5million in punitive damages. Heard was awarded $2million in compensatory damages for her counterclaim against Depp. Heard plans to appeal the verdict.
