Johnny Depp and Marilyn Manson are two celebrities you might not immediately think of as natural creative partners, but they’re teaming up for an upcoming track on Manson’s next album. The song? “You’re So Vain,” originally by Carly Simon.
This won’t be the first time the eccentric entertainers have joined forces. E! Online notes that the soundtrack of 2001′s “From Hell” featured Manson’s song “The Nobodies,” and Depp brought Manson to the “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest” premiere back in 2006.
The Carly Simon cover is for Manson’s Born Villain album, which is set for a May 2012 release. How do you think the two will rework the song?
