Jack Black and Jack White have finally recorded a song together

The dad joke of rock finally happened: Jack Black and Jack White recorded a new song together. Technically White joined Tenacious D as a unit, but as the old joke goes, this is as Jack Grey as it gets. The news broke during Tenacious D’s performance in Nashville this past Sunday. During the band’s set, Black told the crowd, “Jack White, we went over to his house today and recorded a brand new song,” according to the Tennessean. It turns out Tenacious D stopped by White’s recording studio in Nashville, and as such the song will be released on Third Man Records. No release date has been announced, nor did Black specify what White’s contribution to the song was. He could have added a shredding guitar solo, some backing vocals, or simply just produced it. Either way, it’s been a long time coming. (Read: Tenacious D Aimlessly Drift Through Half-Baked Post-Apocalypto) Given their separate celebrity statuses, Black and White have certainly known of each other’s existence for a while, and have been in the same award-show spaces before.

Nick Cave hints at new Grinderman album from “yet to be completed trilogy”

It’s been a long time since we’ve heard from Grinderman — nine years, to be exact. Now Nick Cave is hinting that a new Grinderman album is on the way, almost a decade since their sophomore album dropped. During a 2011 tour, Cave told an audience that “it’s over” for the band — a statement later clarified by drummer Jim Sclavunos as a “bye-bye” because “who knows what will happen in five or 10 years time.” Well, sure enough, the band got an itch to switch from Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds (which all of the band members are in) to Grinderman. Cave recently took to his blog to confirm Grinderman’s first and second records are “part of a yet to be completed trilogy,” NME notes. The new record would follow up their 2010 release, Grinderman 2. (Read: A Streaming Companion to Nick Cave) Cave brought up Grinderman in response to a simple fan question: “When was the last time you felt a sense of pride (in yourself)?” While responding, Cave detailed his love for prog rock, specifically the complexities of King Crimson, and went on to note that he hopes his music does the same. The Grinderman song “Heathen Child”, which […]
