Back in August, it seemed that Jack Black and Jack White were trying to make “Jack Gray” a real thing. During a Tenacious D show in Nashville, Black revealed they had recorded a brand new song with White to be released via Third Man Records.
Now, it looks like we finally have a release date.
To backtrack, the “Jack Gray” collab was teased earlier this year although it was unclear if White would be featured on the track, or if he simply had a hand in producing it.
According to the Tennessean, Black addressed the crowd before the band’s encore during their Nashville show in August.
“Jack White,” Black said, “we went over to his house today and recorded a brand new song.”
He also revealed that fans can expect the release via White’s label, Third Man Records, soon.
Now, TMR has revealed that the project between Jack Black and Jack White will arrive just in time for Record Store Day Black Friday.
We’ll have special offerings for @recordstoreday Black Friday including Patsy Cline’s “Sweet Dreams: The Complete Decca Studio Masters 1960-1963” 3xLP and Jonathan Fire*Eater’s “Wolf Songs For Lambs” on colored vinyl along with @tenaciousd Blue Series 7″.
