"Hi everyone", he began in the clip, "this is my first experience within the world of social media. Now's the opportunity to start up a dialog, since the danger of the invisible enemy has caused significant tragedies and harm to people's lifestyles".

Johnny Depp and Jeff Beck have joined forces to record a new rendition of John Lennon's song Isolation.

Depp urged people to help each other amid the ongoing Pandemic.

Johnny Depp, match the broad universe of Instagram.

Minutes later, as promised, the Pirates of the Caribbean star returned with an 8-minute video in which he discussed the COVID-19 pandemic and the subsequent need for everyone to self-isolate.

He addressed everyone self-isolating, adding, "We must not succumb to shutting down and giving in to what feels like hellish quarantine monotony". "Create one thing at this time that may profit yourselves and others tomorrow. Do anything you think could be of use to brighten someone's day". "Draw, learn, paint, assume, study, make a movie in your telephone, play an instrument in case you play; in case you don't, study".

The musical soulmates have been working behind-the-scenes for the past few several years on new music and have released their first single as a duo today, a re-imagining of John Lennon's classic track "Isolation", which is available now on all streaming and digital download services from Atco/Rhino Records. He believes the lyrics penned by Lennon are fitting for what's happening.

He added: "The song's about isolation, fear, and the existential risk to our world, so we wanted to give the song to you".

Depp inspired his followers - now amassing over a million - to take the time in self-isolation to be artistic. For the Mahindra chairman, no topic is too big or too small.

Looks like even the celebrities are finding it hard to cope with the lockdown.

The quarantine has made people do a lot of things that they normally wouldn't do. Location, lighting and subject should all be taken into consideration.
