[ # ] Johnny Depp and Jeff Beck release a powerful cover of John Lennon’s Isolation
April 17th, 2020 under Johnny Depp


Johnny Depp is an extremely private person. Therefore, the concept of him ever joining social media seemed like it would be nearly impossible. One of the things we have learned through these difficult times is that nothing is impossible anymore.

Case in point, the actor joined Instagram and had a very powerful message to share with the world. We need to help people through these dark and trying times. Even though it feels like our hands are tied behind our backs (which they are), we need to make time and care for others. We are going to get through this.

Since he cannot go out and secretly bring joy to others, he found a way to do it via social media. He revealed that he and Jeff Beck have been working on an album for over a year now. Even though the album is not ready to be released, they shared a song that is perfect for listening to, as we all are self-quarantining. That haunting tune is John Lennon’s Isolation.

Together, they modernized a song whose lyrics are timeless. It is the type of song where you stop whatever you are doing, close your eyes, and get lost in it. All you can do is appreciate the power of it. For a few minutes, everything that is bothering you just vanishes. All you do is feel the music and let it transport you to a safe place where there is no virus. A world where we can hug our loved ones, who are not able to be with us, and they can hug us back.

We need a few minutes to not be lost in our thoughts. That is Depp’s way of bringing us joy in a time when there doesn’t seem to be any.

Before he pressed stopped, he had one last thing to say to us. The actor said, “On a more personal note, thank you for your kindness, your unwavering support, and your strength over these years. I am touched beyond words.”

Finally, he promised, “I reckon there is more to come.” We need his calm voice in these hectic times and I hope he doesn’t wait too long to record another video. To see the first one, then
