Johnny Depp is back in action! Following his victory in his defamation lawsuit, Johnny Depp made a quick comeback to professional life with a rousing musical performance on stage in UK. Now, he is all set to make new music album with Jeff Beck.

The actor performed eight songs with guitarist Jeff Beck on Thursday evening, the only night after the two pals were seen celebrating Depp’s court victory in a Newcastle bar with fellow musician Sam Fender.

During the show, Depp made no mention of his court struggle with his ex-wife Amber Heard. And the legendary guitarist and former Yardbirds singer, Jeff Beck disclosed Depp’s next professional step, revealing that the two will release an album together next month. They previously worked together on a cover of John Lennon’s “Isolation.” During the concert, Jeff told the crowd.

I met this guy five years ago and we’ve never stopped laughing since. We actually made an album. I don’t know how it happened. It will be out in July.

Following the verdict in Virginia, Depp issued a statement stating he was relieved to have his life back and looking forward to “a new chapter.”

The jury returned their judgments on June 1st, concluding that Heard had defamed Depp on all three counts. She was asked to pay him $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages. Heard’s lawsuit was deemed to be partially successful, and she was given $2 million in compensatory damages but no punitive penalties.
