Jack White & Stephen Colbert Cut a 45

 

Plus all those hawt
Black Belles gals…

It’s not your mother’s Jack White, that’s for sure. The
erstwhile White Stripes mainman isn’t wasting any time getting back into the
social swim, post-divorce party. Although rather than squiring around supermodels
on both arms, he’s been hanging out with faux-news show host and comedian
Stephen Colbert. The two have cut a 45 titled “Charlene II (I’m Over You)” that
White’s Third Man label has released; it also features another Third Man act,
the Black Belles, who tackle B-side duties with “Charlene (I’m Right Behind
You)”.

 

The Colbert song premiered yesterday on “The Colbert Report”
check the clips, below (they’ve been “flipped” by the uploader to avoid a takedown, which is kinda weird but kinda clever). There’s also a fun interview with Jack White in which he reveals his musical heroes include Captain Beefheart and Charley Patton; watch for him trying to keep from cracking up at different points during the conversation too. And apparently if you are in NYC today in the vicinity
of 10th Ave
and 30th St
around 11 am you can drop by the Third Man store (that would be the big yellow
truck) and purchase a copy of the single direct from White and Colbert.

 

 

 

Is it just me, or does the photo above prompt subliminal
memories of Robert Palmer back in the ‘80s, doing those videos with the
sultry-chick  backing band?
