The Pirates of the Caribbean star proved in the past several days that he is ready for a comeback. However, he did not announce any new movie project but decided to dedicate his time to the music.

Depp has already released a new song, and the lyrics are pretty intriguing. The tune This is a Song for Miss Hedy Lamarr will be on Depp and Beck's album, set to be released on 15 July. The album's title is 18.

On the surface, it appeared that the song follows Austrian-born actress Lamarr. She rose to fame in the 1940s and traded her acting career for a career in technology during WWII.

Depp already performed the song, but it appears that people are only now catching up with what the actor and musician wanted to say.

The song starts with "Erased by the same world who made her a star…"

The lyrics continue:

"The light of her being, her exotic allure / Was torn at the seams for daring to dream / It's so hard to speak when you're frozen in scream… Feels like a dream, but it's life and its death."

In the chorus, he can be heard singing: ​"I don't believe, I can't believe, I won't believe humans anymore."

In the song's second part, Depp sings: "It's so hard to talk when no one will hear, and everyone stares as you quiver in fear."

It is now evident why these lyrics were important to Depp.

The star joined Beck on tour even before the jurors reached the verdict. As Depp was in the UK playing, he heard the news that he won all three counts of defamation trial against his ex-wife, Amber Heard.

Beck and Depp played in London, Sheffield, Birmingham, and Newcastle and announced their upcoming album.

The famous guitarist said:

"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."

Per the Virginia court verdict, Depp was awarded $10 million in compensatory and $5 million in punitive damages. Due to state law capping punitive damages at $350,000, Depp won $10.35 million.

Amber Heard's counterclaim won her one count and $2 million in damages. She won on the count of comments made by Depp's attorney, Adam Waldman, who allegedly claimed that her abuse was a "hoax."

Depp's been playing the guitar since he was a child.

His bandmate Alice Cooper from Hollywood Vampires told The Daily Beast that music had likely helped Depp, "I know Johnny was writing all last year when that whole thing was going on with him."

Cooper concluded:

"I'm expecting some pretty interesting songs."
