Marilyn Manson and Johnny Depp finally release song together — and it's a Carly Simon cover

When Marilyn Manson recently released his new single “No Reflection,” we wondered whether he was still scary – or even relevant.

Likewise, one could ask a similar question about Johnny Depp: Is he still cool?

We’re not sure, but we do know that Captain Jack is teaming up with the “Beautiful People” singer to release a duet cover of Carly Simon’s “You’re So Vain,” which fans(?) will be able to hear on Manson’s upcoming album Born Villain.

If the project sounds like some oddball, Jack White-meets-ICP-style pairing, think again – Depp and Manson are actually real-life buddies who attend movie premieres together and stuff.

They’ve even been known to go to each other’s houses to compare their funky hat collections. OK, fine, we can’t say for sure that that’s actually true… but we also can’t say for sure that it’s not true.
