The 56-year-old actor's first Instagram post is a picture of himself where he is seen sitting on a bench surrounded by candles.

"Hello everyone... filming something for you now... gimme a minute," he wrote in the caption.

The next post by the actor was an IGTV video in which he announced that he will soon be releasing a cover of the famous 1970 song 'Isolation' by John Lennon and also talked about the coronavirus pandemic. He urged followers to "care for one another" during the lockdown.  "We cannot and must not succumb to shutting down and giving in to what feels like hellish quarantine monotony," Depp said.
