Johnny Depp - Johnny Depp To Feature On Lost Dylan Lyrics Album

Actor Johnny Depp is set to show off his musical talents on a new record based on unfinished Bob Dylan songs.

The Alice in Wonderland star visited the Los Angeles' Capitol Studios to watch the recording session for producer T Bone Burnett's Lost On The River: The New Basement Tapes, but ended up filling in for Elvis Costello on the guitar for the song Kansas City.

Lost On The River: The New Basement Tapes, which also features Marcus Mumford of Mumford & Sons and Jim James of My Morning Jacket, is set for release this autumn (14) to coincide with a new documentary called Lost Songs: The Basement Tapes Continued, directed by Sam Jones.

The lyrics come from Dylan's 1967 Basement Tapes sessions.

This isn't the first musical venture for the Depp - the actor is currently working with The Beatles legend Paul MCCartney on a secret project with Alice Cooper and Joe Perry, while he has also become a familiar sight at Aerosmith and Willie Nelson concerts after joining them onstage on various occasions.
