Johnny Depp to feature on Babybird album

There’s one sure fire way to get some press for your new album, enlist A-lister and global heart throb Johnny Depp not only to feature on it but to direct the first single.

Of course it may be a load of Willy Wonka but that’s exactly what Britpoppers Babybird have done. Famous for their annoyingly catchy mid 90’s fare, ‘You’re Gorgeous’, main man Steve Jones has announced details of their comeback and that they've somehow roped Jack Sparrow into appearing on it (he’s a fan). "Depp makes a cameo appearance on the new Babybird recording," confirmed a band spokesman to MTV.

This isn’t Depp’s first foray into Britpop, he played guitar ‘Fade In/Out’ a track from Oasis’ 1997 album Be Here Now.

Babybird’s 6th album ‘Ex-Maniac’ will hit download stores in February 2010.
