Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry has contributed five songs to City of Lies, the latest film to star his Hollywood Vampires bandmate Johnny Depp.

Perry was a guest at Depp’s Los Angeles home a few years back when the film was in production. He says, “We watched some clips and talked about some of the scenes that they needed some music for, and [director and music producer] Brad Furman, [musician] Alberto Bof, Johnny and I started talking about ideas on what I could add. I never had a chance to work with someone as classically trained and as talented as Alberto on a one-to-one basis… As we worked our way through each piece of music, Alberto and I played in a style that was definitely not in my everyday wheelhouse.”

Perry had one of his sons, Roman Perry, join him on the song “Big Come Up.” Perry is also working on a new album that will reportedly be released this year.

City of Lies will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on June 8th.
