Jeff and Johnny Depp’s “18” Released in July
The much-awaited collaboration between Beck and Depp, “18”, was released on July 15. The album featured 13 tracks, most of which are covers of Motown soul songs as well as titles by the Beach Boys, The Velvet Underground and English rock band, Killing Joke.
18 debuted at number 10 on both Billboard’s Top Albums and Top Current Albums. The two musicians first bonded over cars and guitars back in 2016. They decided to create an album together and started working on it in 2019, sampling some of Depp’s originals and a number of covers from several genres of music.
Talking about the album, Jeff had said in a press release, “We were going to call the album ‘Kitchen Sink’ because we threw everything in it. The only game plan we had was to play songs we like and see where they took us.”
Beck and Depp were Recently Accused of Stealing Lyrics
The duo recently made news as they were accused of stealing lyrics to their new song Sad Motherf*ckin’ Parade from Hobo Ben, an old toast — or form of Black folk poetry — delivered by the late Slim Wilson and preserved in Bruce Jackson’s 1974 book Get Your Ass in the Water and Swim Like Me and a 1976 album of the same name.
A spokesperson for the album has said, “We are reviewing the inquiry relating to the song ‘Sad Motherf*ckin’ Parade’ on the 18 album by Jeff Beck and Johnny Depp. If appropriate, additional copyright credits will be added to all forms of the album.”
