In your face, Conan O’Brien. Comedian and late night talk show host Stephen Colbert is the latest artist to join the roster of Jack White’s Third Man Records, the independent Nashville-based label that specializes in limited edition vinyl releases.
After featuring White and his label during The Colbert Report’s week-long “Colbchella ‘011” celebration, the comedian announced last night that fans could pick up a copy of his new single, “Charlene II (I’m Over You),” from ThirdmanRecords.com and iTunes.
The single, the followup to the fictional ’80s anthem “Charlene (I’m Right Behind You),” was produced by White himself. Colbert performed the song last night with Third Man recording artists The Black Belles.
Today, White and Colbert are selling the single from the Third Man Rolling Record Store truck in New York City’s Highline Park.
