London: Superstar Johnny Depp has teamed up with his rocker pal Marilyn Manson to record a cover version of Cakly Simon`s classic `You are so vain`.

The "Pirates of the Caribbean" star offered his services for the collaboration, playing drums and lead guitar while Manson provided vocals for the tune.

The song will appear as a bonus track on Manson`s upcoming album `Born Villain`, Daily Star reported.

"We wanted to do a cover of a song which we thought was ironic for each other... 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," Manson said.

It`s not the first time the 48-year-old actor`s rock credentials have gone down on record. He has also contributed guitar tracks to Oasis` 1997 album `Be Here Now`.
