Johnny Depp has wasted no time bouncing back from his trials. Today he and famed guitarist Jeff Beck drop a new single called “This is a Song for Hedy Lamarr” dedicated to the great screen actress, director, and inventor among other things.

On July 15th comes an album of covers with Beck called “18.” It features songs by Marvin Gaye, The Beach Boys, John Lennon, The Velvet Underground, Killing Joke, And More, Along with two original Depp songs.

Depp and Beck are now on tour in Europe. So this took a lot of planning, and Johnny obviously knew all of it was planned to start right after the trial. What if he hadn’t won?
