Jack White has teamed up with US comedian Stephen Colbert to release the 7" single 'Charlene II (I'm Over You)'.

After singing about yoghurt and Bob Seger a few days ago, the singer has now decided to produce the comedian singing with the Black Belles.

Guesting on The Colbert Report throughout the week as part of the Colbert's StePhest COLBCHELLA '011, Jack White was smiling, laughing and having a lot of fun with the fake right-wing presenter.

As reported by Pitchfork, Colbert and White will be selling copies of the 7" at the Third Man Rolling Record Store in New York City as of this afternoon (24 June).

Colbert, pretending he once had an '80s band, Stephen and the Colberts, named 'Charlene II' the follow up to his supposed 'hit record' 'Charlene (I'm Right Behind You)'.

The 'fictional hits' were played on the show by the Black Belles, with the first song fronted by Colbert. Both will be available on the 7" single, which is also available to buy from the former The White Stripes frontman's label Third Man Records.

Last October Stephen Colbert teamed up with fellow comedian Jon Stewart for The Rally to Restore Sanity. The live comedy event featured music from The Roots, John Legend, Ozzy Osbourne, Kid Rock and Yusef Islam.

Earlier this year, Jack and Meg White confirmed that The White Stripes had split up and would make "no further new recordings or perform live". The singer also revealed that he and model Karen Elson would be getting divorced after six years of marriage earlier this month (June 10).
