Jeff Beck and Johnny Depp covered this
for a collaborative album. Longtime Beck collaborators, drummer Vinnie Colaiuta and bassist Rhonda Smith, also play on the track.
Beck and Depp recorded the track in 2019 and decided to release it in April 2020 before the rest of their album because its theme reflected what people were experiencing during the 2020 coronavirus pandemic. "Lennon's poetry – 'We're afraid of everyone. Afraid of the Sun!' – seemed to Jeff and me especially profound right now, this song about isolation, fear and existential risks to our world," said Depp. "So we wanted to give it to you, and hope it helps you make sense of the moment or just helps you pass the time as we endure isolation together."
