To celebrate his adventures at White's Third Man Studios in Nashville, Stephen Colbert hosted his own summer music fest on The Colbert Report this week. He also had Jack White in the house for a few nights for what he dubbed 2001 and 1: A Rock Odyssey Featuring Jack White.
Colbert's four-day rock fest featured performances by Bon Iver, Florence and the Machine, Talib Kweli and Jack White. Colbert closed the tour Thursday night by having White introduce the ultimate goth rockers: Stephen Colbert with the Black Belles!
The faux new man also claimed to have signed with Third Man Studios and now, Colbert has in fact released Charlene II (I'm Over You) on White's label. Charlene II (I'm Over You) is available on iTunes and vinyl, via the label's website, and this morning, June 24, 2011, the promotion continued. Stephen Colbert with the Black Belles turned out at the Third Man Rolling Record Store release party in New York to perform their new track and sign limited-edition copies of the single.
