The first track Jack White has recorded with Butthole Surfers frontman Gibby Haynes has been revealed online. Scroll down to hear it.
As revealed earlier this week, the pair worked on three songs, set to be released as a single on White’s Third Man Records. The single features new songs ‘You Don’t Have To Be Smart’ and ‘Horse Named George’, as well as a cover of hardcore band Adrenalin OD’s ‘Paul’s Not Home’ which you can hear below.
Haynes sings on all three songs whilst White plays guitar. The former frontman of The White Stripes also provides backing vocals on ‘Paul’s Not Home’. The song originally appeared on 1982’s ‘New York Thrash’ compilation alongside the first ever recorded Beastie Boys tracks, ‘Riot Fight’ and ‘Beastie’.
The single is released on February 14, but a number of limited edition versions of the 7″ will be pressed onto old medical x-rays, in what White is dubbing a ‘flex-ray disc’. These will be sold exclusively from Third Man’s Rolling Record Store van at South By Southwest next month in Austin, Texas.
The single is part of Third Man Records’ Blue Series, which has also seen special releases by Laura Marling, Tom Jones, Insane Clown Posse, Jeff The Brotherhood and Beck.
