Beck to release single on Jack White's Third Man Records label

Beck is set to release a special, limited-edition single on Jack White's Third Man Records label.

The single, 'I Just Started Hating Some People Today'/'Blue Randy', will be released on May 28 as a limited run of coloured seven-inch vinyl records, with 100 tri-colour versions of the track going on sale exclusively at Randy's Records, a store in Salt Lake City, Utah on June 2. A digital version of the two songs will also be on sale via iTunes.

The two tracks were recorded last year at the Third Man studio in Nashville, when Beck was in the Tennessee city recording the follow-up to 2008's 'Modern Guilt', reports Rolling Stone.

Other established artists to release one-off singles on the Third Man label include Tom Jones, Laura Marling and Insane Clown Posse.

Earlier this year, a previously unreleased track by Beck, a cover of the traditional song 'Corrina, Corrina', featured on a charity album put out by model Christy Turlington Burns, who teamed up with coffee giants Starbucks to release 'Every Mother Counts Volume 2'.
