While Beck and Jack White have collaborated in the past, the former took a surprisingly long time to release a single via the latter’s Third Man Records label. That has finally happened, as Beck recorded the songs I Just Started Hating Some People Today and Blue Randy last year in Nashville, while also working on a new album.
The single was released this Monday, and while vinyl copies are out of stock on Third Man Records’ website, you can listen to the A-side below:
You can pick up I Just Started Hating Some People Today on iTunes, or try to find a copy at Nashville’s own Third Man Records store. Also, inspired by the title of Blue Randy, an extremely limited run of 100 Tri Color 7-inches will be available beginning 10am on Saturday June 2nd at Randy’s Records at 157 East 900 South in Salt Lake City. An even scarcer scattering of 50 Tri Colors will be randomly inserted in mail orders for the single placed with Third Man.
Beck is currently on tour across the US, and a new album of his is to be expected this year. Watch his latest onstage extravaganza with Tenacious D here.
