Jeff Beck and Johnny Depp recently released a cover of The Beach Boys‘ “Caroline, No” along with an accompanying music video.
The video finds Beck and his live band performing the song onstage. Depp doesn’t appear in the video.
The instrumental cover version of the hit from Beach Boys’ 1966 album Pet Sounds, will be part of Beck and Depp’s upcoming record, 18, which will be available on CD and digitally on July 15. A 180-gram black vinyl version will arrive on September 30.
Brian Wilson has said “Caroline, No,” the final song on the Pet Sounds album, could be the best song he’s ever written.
“That entire album was great support for me in horrible times,” Beck said. “I’d left the Yardbirds and regretted it because I had nothing. I was back living with my mum and dad. I thought, right, I’m not going sit around doing nothing.”
“So, I bought a stereo and Pet Sounds, and I was just riveted to the spot,” he added. “I remember it was a great big cure from losing the Yardbirds, having Jimi Hendrix stomp all over things, and losing my girlfriend. All that happened in what seemed like the same day.”
Depp and Jeff Beck met in 2016 and their mutual admiration for each other’s talent resulted in some great covers. They recorded a mix of Depp originals along with a wide range of covers over the next three or four years.
