Listen to Jack Black and Jack White join forces on Tenacious D’s new track ‘Don’t Blow It, Kage’

White is credited as producer on the song

Jack White‘s much-talked-about collaboration with Tenacious D has finally been released – listen to ‘Don’t Blow It, Kage’ below.

Over the summer, Jack Black and Kyle Gass visited White’s Third Man Records HQ in Nashville to record a “legendary” joint song. The musical hook-up came after the two Jacks crossed paths in an airport and posed for a selfie together.

Having been released via a limited-edition vinyl for Black Friday last week, the result of their studio session is now available to stream online.

The two-minute cut, on which White is credited as producer, begins with Black singing the line: “Don’t blow it, Kage / Don’t blow it, Kage / Just play the best shit you’ve ever fucking played.”

Addressing his new pal White, he later adds: “Jack White invited us to party / He wanted us to kick out the jams / Red light, it’s time for us to party / I’m hoping we can kick out the jams.”

After a solo, a breakdown and the admission that “Jack White is drinking a Bacardi“, the former White Stripes frontman interjects to ask Tenacious D to start a band with him. “Yes?!” Gass replies.

Speaking in a behind-the-scenes clip of Black and Gass’s visit released in August, White joked of his new collaborators: “I didn’t realise, but they’re actually not very nice guys; they’re actually really mean.”

Discussing the track, Black said: “Me and [Gass] have been working on a jam — it’s not quite done, but I think that’s where Jack White comes in and helps us pull it over the finish line. This is a legendary collab.”

Jack White, meanwhile, is currently touring with The Raconteurs in support of their comeback album ‘Help Us Stranger’. During a show in Mexico City last month, the band were joined onstage by Julian Casablancas for a performance of The Strokes’ ‘The Modern Age’.
