In the epic conclusion of Stephen Colbert’s “2011: A Rock Odyssey featuring Jack White, pt. 3,” Colbert debuts his Jack White-produced, Black Belles-featuring song “Charlene 2 (I’m Over You)”, the follow-up to 1980’s chart-adjacent hit “Charlene, I’m Right Behind You”, but not before Colbert tours Third Man HQ and dresses like Jack White circa 2003, and White curses out Rolling Stone. These guys need a sitcom together, like, yesterday.
A 7″ version of “Charlene 2 (I’m Over You)” (b/w The Black Belles’ version of “Charlene (I’m Right Behind You)”) is now available via Third Man Record’s website. Also, if you’re in New York City, White and Colbert will be slinging vinyl at the High Line (W. 30th St & 10th Ave) on Friday at 11 AM EDT.
Update: Here’s an eight-minute web exclusive in the form of a good ol’ fashion catholic throwdown:
