Here’s a strange news item: Johnny Depp has recorded a song with Goth rocker Marilyn Manson. Now this is where the strange news item gets slightly more bizarre: they chose Carly Simon’s ‘You’re So Vain’ as the track on which they wanted to collaborate. So when and where can you listen to this odd collaboration?

According to the Huffington Post the Depp/Manson duet will be available on Manson’s upcoming album ‘Born Villain,’ which streets on May 1.

Depp and Manson aren’t as strange of bedfellows as you might assume. They have been friends for years, ever since Manson contributed a track titled ‘The Nobodies’ to Depp’s 2001 thriller ‘From Hell.’ Years later, Manson was Depp’s guest to the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ premiere in Disneyland. And truthfully, Depp has been borrowing Manson’s pale-faced look for virtually every Tim Burton project since ‘Edward Scissorhands.’ He owes Manson, and agreeing to appear on his album can be considered payback.

Depp also has been involved in various musical projects over the years. He’s a lifelong guitar player. He sang his way through Burton’s ‘Sweeney Todd’ musical. So yeah, this collaboration makes more sense than you might have imagined right off of the bat.

Manson’s putting the finishing touches on ‘Villain,’ which will be his eighth studio album and first since 2009’s ‘The High End of Low.’ Depp, meanwhile, has Burton’s ‘Dark Shadows’ hitting theaters in May 11. And maybe, if Manson hits the road this summer, he can convince Depp to join him on stage every once in a while for an all-star duet.
