Johnny Depp To Feature On Marilyn Manson's New LP!

EXCLUSIVE | The rocker tells us all about their future collaboration...

Shock rocker Marilyn Manson has revealed to MTV News that his new album will feature the musical talents of Hollywood superstar Johnny Depp.
 
Manson exclusively told presenter Joel Dommett (pictured) that the Pirates of the Caribbean actor plays drums and lead guitar on a bonus track they recorded for his eighth studio LP, Born Villain.

Speaking of their collaboration - rumoured to be a cover of Carly Simon's You're So Vain - The Beautiful People singer revealed: "We did a cover version together of a song which we thought was ironic for each other,”
 
Manson continued: “He played drums and lead guitar, and I played guitar and sang. It’s a bonus track on my record and the video will probably be us looking at each other like a mirror.
 
“Johnny’s son Jack – whose birthday I’m gonna be performing at – was in the room and he actually played on the song too. It’s pretty cool.”
 
While nine-year-old Jack will have Marilyn Manson singing happy birthday to him in a few weeks, his older sister Lily-Rose could be receiving a new pair of shoes from their family friend.
 
The 43-year old explained: “I met Johnny when I was 19 when I was an extra on 21 Jump Street. I bought his daughter her first pair of high heels when she was wearing diapers, so we’ve been friends for a long time.”
 
Marilyn Manson releases his new album Born Villain on 30th April.
