Jack Black and Jack White Are Making Music Together As Jack Grey
Jack Black and Jack White seem to have known each other for a while—Black introduced the White Stripes at a small L.A. concert back in 2007—but photographic proof of the two monochromatically named Jacks meeting only first surfaced earlier this summer. And now it looks like the two guys are going to record a song together, predictably under the name Jack Grey.
In a video posted to Black’s Jablinski Games channel, Black and his Tenacious D bandmate Kyle Gass stopped by the Nashville studio of White’s label, Third Man Records. Once there, White gave a history of the some of the illustrious concerts performed at Third Man. "All of Led Zepplin’s—all of their moms did a show together," joked White. "I think one of them’s like 105."
Later, Black and Gass headed to White’s house to work on their joint track. "If you’re thinking about being my baby, it don’t matter if Jack Black or White,” sang Black in the car, before he and Gass launched into an a cappella rendition of "Seven Nation Army."
There’s no word yet on when to expect the Jack Grey collab to drop, and sadly the video doesn’t offer a preview, in part because Tenacious D weren’t allowed to film while they were recording the song in White’s home studio. But Black does tell the world a bit about what Chez White looks like, and, well, it’s pretty much what you’d expect. “I’ve never seen so many cool antique toys,” he said. "and like, little moviolas.” Check out the video below.
