Johnny Depp Blasts Amber Heard On New Album. Johnny Depp has been on a victory tour since he won the defamation suit he leveled at his ex-wife Amber Heard. He took to TikTok to thank his fans for their support. He soaked in adulation from crowds at his concerts. And it seems like he’s beginning to fire back up his acting career, which he blames Heard for ruining.
Depp appears to still have some more knife-throwing to do, though. According to the Sunday Times, Depp’s lyrics on several songs of a new album that will be published on July 15 appear to call out his former love interest and present foe.
The album, 18, is a collaboration between Depp and former Yardbirds guitarist Jeff Beck. On one song titled “Sad Motherf**kin’ Parade,” Depp sings, “You’re sitting there like a dog with a seven-year itch.” “If I had a dime, it wouldn’t reach your hand,” he continues on the same track. On another tune, Depp explodes, “I think you’ve said enough for one motherf**king night.”
Only a few singles have been released so far from the upcoming album, including “The Death and Resurrection Show” and “This Is A Song For Miss Hedy Lamarr.” Depp’s also released a few covers which will be on the album: the Beach Boys’ “Caroline, No,” the Velvet Underground’s “Venus and Furs,” and John Lennon’s “Isolation.”
Last month, Depp and Beck performed a number of tour dates in the UK. Depp is 59 years old, and Beck is 76 years old. The Sunday Times reports that the title of the new project alludes to the men’s respective ages as musicians.
