He’s silent no more: Johnny Depp is using his latest album to sing out about winning his contentious defamation trial against ex-wife Amber Heard, in accordance with a report.
“I feel you’ve said enough for one motherf—ing night,” he sings on the record he made with legendary British guitarist Jeff Beck, which is about to be released Friday, the Sunday Times of London reported.
Depp penned two songs on the album, titled “18,” with Beck, the previous Yardbirds guitarist. The tunes appear to disclose how Depp can have been feeling throughout the grueling, weeks-long trial that exposed the couple’s troubled married life to the world.
“You’re sitting there like a dog with a seven-year itch,” he sings on one track, called “Sad Motherf—in’ Parade,” in accordance with the Times.
“If I had a dime, it wouldn’t reach your hand,” he belts out in one other line of the song.
Depp, 59, joined Beck, 76, on a string of tour dates throughout the UK in June. Their album is known as for the youthful age the pair say they feel each time they play music, the paper reported.

After Depp’s two songs, the remaining tracks off the album are cover songs, including “Caroline, No” by the Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson, and Lou Reed’s “Venus and Furs” by the Velvet Underground, in accordance with The Times.
Outside of his prolific acting profession, Depp has a protracted history of playing music. He recently announced he might be happening tour next summer along with his rock supergroup “Hollywood Vampires,” which consists of Depp, Joe Perry, Alice Cooper and Tommy Henriksen.
Depp scored a win in his case last month against Heard, 36, whom he sued for defamation after she wrote a bit for the Washington Post 2018 alleging abuses against an unnamed partner.
After a nationally televised trial, a seven-person jury awarded Depp $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages – though Virginia law caps punitive damages at $350,000.
Heard was awarded $2 million in her countersuit against her ex-husband.
