SCARY COLLABORATIONS: Johnny Depp and Marilyn Manson cover Carly Simon.

MTV News reports that Johnny Depp and Marilyn Manson have teamed up for a cover of Carly Simon’s 1927 hit “You’re So Vain.” The song is set to appear as a bonus track on Manson’s upcoming album, Born Villain, which comes out in May. Marilyn says of Depp’s role on the song, “He played drums and lead guitar, and I played guitar and sang. It’s a bonus track on my new record and the video will probably be us looking at each other in a mirror.” Depp’s nine-year-old son, Jack, also reportedly plays on it. Manson and Depp have been friends for years and met on the set of 21 Jump Street.
