Johnny Depp to feature on Doors album.
Hollywood actor to read Jim Morrison's poetry on soundtrack album for forthcoming documentary.
The soundtrack album for a forthcoming Doors documentary will feature 12 of the band's classic songs, five rare clips – and 15 tracks of Johnny Depp reading poetry. The actor appears on almost half of the record's cuts, reciting verse written by Jim Morrison.
Depp provides the narration for When You're Strange, a film by Tom DiCillo. The documentary draws on hundreds of hours of footage of the Los Angeles group, from their early beginnings to Morrison's death in 1971.
It recently played at the Berlin film festival, where Doors drummer John Densmore said he "got a little teary" when he saw footage of the band's late singer.
"It shows Jim in the beginning, his innocence and shyness and everything, and I love seeing that – that's the Jim I knew," Densmore told Mojo. The film also suggests that the Doors would have reunited, even after Morrison left the US to live in Paris. "[Jim] asked how [Doors album] LA Woman was doing and I said, 'Great,'" Densmore recalled.
"I told him that Love Her Madly was the single and that they wanted a second single. He said, 'Well, maybe I'll come back.'"
Morrison published only two volumes of poetry before his death, but more of his books have been issued since then. Recordings of Morrison reading his own work have also appeared on various Doors anthologies.
The soundtrack to When You're Strange will be released by Rhino on 6 April.

'When You’re Strange' soundtrack to feature Johnny Depp, rare Doors shows
The soundtrack of the upcoming Doors documentary When You're Strange will feature Johnny Depp reciting several selections of poetry by Jim Morrison, according to a March 9 announcement, as well as interviews and rare live recordings of the band. Pre-orders are now being accepted for the album, which will be available April 6.
When You're Strange: A Film About The Doors, which will see a very limited US release on April 9, is directed by Tom DiCillo and narrated by Johnny Depp.
The film will include footage filmed between 1965 and 1971, tracking the band from film school beginnings to sold-out arenas.
In conjunction with the film, Rhino is set to release two double-LP live collections, Absolutely Live and Live in New York, on March 16, followed by When You're Strange: Songs from the Motion Picture.
The soundtrack reportedly includes several selections of Jim Morrison's poetry read by Depp, 14 songs that survey The Doors' six albums, and interview clips and rare live performances from The Ed Sullivan Show, Danish television, and the Isle Of Wight Festival.
