Jeff Beck and Johnny Depp “Isolation” John Lennon cover

Legendary guitarist and two-time Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Jeff Beck, one of the great collaborators in music history, has once-again found an unexpected co-conspirator in Johnny Depp. The musical soulmates have been working behind-the-scenes for the past few several years on new music and have released their first single as a duo today, a re-imagining of John Lennon’s classic track “Isolation,” which is available now on all streaming and digital download services from Atco/Rhino Records.

“Isolation” finds Beck in classic form on guitar with Depp on vocals, joined by long-time Beck collaborators Vinnie Colaiuta on drums and Rhonda Smith on bass. The band first performed the track live at Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival last September in Texas.

“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,” says Beck. “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.” jeffbeck.com

    1. Hello there Dolly! Happy Monday! Thank you for your feedback. I can only guess that Beck and Depp were feeling the COVID19 harness, and that’s when Lennon’s song inspired them! LOL! Lennon had a strange insight that I have always heard in his songs. Today, they all sound wonderful!💕🌺💕

    2. Lennon had lots of insights, and so did Yoko, and she still does. I have her book “Grapefruit” with his introduction sitting on my cocktail table and sometimes I just open it at random – amazing stuff!

Dear followers and readers, thank you for stopping by. We’d love to get your feedback even with the smallest chit or an engaging conversational chat. Best regards!
