Legendary guitarist Jeff Beck has officially teamed up with the iconic Johnny Depp to unveil their first collaborative single, a cover of the signature John Lennon tune "Isolation."  Released via ATCO, Rhino Records, the song is now available on all streaming and digital download services here

Depp roars new life into the classic Lennon track on vocals alongside Beck (guitar), his bandmates Vinnie Colaiuta (drums) and Rhonda Smith (bass). The band debuted the song live during Eric Clapton's Crossroads Guitar Festival last year. 

“Johnny and I have been working on music together for a while now and we recorded this track during our time in the studio last year. We weren’t expecting to release it so soon but given all the hard days and true ‘isolation’ that people are going through in these challenging times, we decided now might be the right time to let you all hear it,” shared Beck in a press statement. “You’ll be hearing more from Johnny and me in a little while but until then we hope you find some comfort and solidarity in our take on this Lennon classic.” 

Added Depp, “Jeff Beck and I recorded this song Isolation last year, as our take on a beautiful John Lennon tune. Lennon’s poetry – ‘We’re afraid of everyone. Afraid of the Sun!’ – seemed to Jeff and me especially profound right now, this song about isolation, fear, and existential risks to our world. So we wanted to give it to you, and hope it helps you make sense of the moment or just helps you pass the time as we endure isolation together.”
