Stephen Colbert spent three episodes this week on his "StePhest Colbchella '011: Rock You Like a Thirst-Icane!" television music festival, the highlight being his time spent with Jack White.
Last night, the Third Man Records love-in reached its inevitable conclusion, with the funnyman announcing a comedy single to be released by the Nashville-based, White-run imprint.
White helped Colbert form ideas, looks and sounds for the follow-up single to his fake '80s stalker hit "Charlene (I'm Right Behind You)," a spoofy song the comedian first introduced to the world in 2006. Witchy, overwrought spooky garage rock quartet The Black Belles, who are signed to Third Man, were on hand to complete the vision: "Charlene II (I'm Over You)."
The 7" single pressing of the track is available now through the Third Man Records site. White and Colbert were on hand in New York this morning selling the vinyl from the record shop's roving store-on-wheels.
