People know Johnny Depp from his diverse acting roles in Hollywood. However, his musical projects rarely known by the wider public. Depp is part of a rock band known as the Hollywood Vampires, with Alice Cooper and Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry. However, after his divorce with Amber Heard and its messy aftermath, his acting and musical career took a hit. But finally, Depp decided to treat his fans with a cover of John Lennon’s Isolation. He collaborated with Jeff Beck on this project.
Johnny Depp’s Isolation relates to his life:
Jeff Beck and Johnny Depp may have dropped this song during the lockdown. However, it was actually made last year. As Beck explains:
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. 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.
Johnny Depp made the song long before anyone knew what a coronavirus is. It means that the songs’ lyrics have nothing to do with the lockdown and everything to do with Amber Heard. Fans speculate that he sang the song to vent and channel his feelings about Heard, after all their domestic violence drama. Certainly, the choice to cover Isolation must have to do with its lyrics:
I don’t expect you to understand
After you’ve caused so much pain
But then again, you’re not to blame
You’re just a human, a victim of the insane
Is he finally recovering from Amber Heard?
Needless to say, Johnny Depp was severely affected by Amber Heard’s accusations. He lost his career, his reputation, and his friends. Depp already had a mysterious personality before he had to deal with this fiasco. Fans worry that Heard’s actions had a mental impact on Depp. He recently made his own Instagram account to interact with his fans during this lockdown. And with the release of his new song, it seems he is finally recovering from whatever damage Heard had done. Fans look forward to Depp appearing in Fantastic Beasts 3.
