London: Superstar Johnny Depp has teamed up
with his rocker pal Marilyn Manson to record a cover version
of Cakly Simon's classic You are so vain.
The Pirates of the Caribbean star offered his services
for the collaboration, playing drums and lead guitar while
Manson provided vocals for the tune.
The song will appear as a bonus track on Manson's
upcoming album Born Villain, Daily Star reported.
"We wanted to do a cover of a song which we thought was
ironic for each other... He played drums and lead guitar, and
I played guitar and sang. It's a bonus track on my new record
and the video will probably be us looking at each other in a
mirror," Manson said.
It's not the first time the 48-year-old actor's rock
credentials have gone down on record. He has also contributed
guitar tracks to Oasis' 1997 album Be Here Now.
