Jack White & Insane Clown Posse

That headline is for real. According to a video released on the official website for Jack White’s Third Man Records, featuring the former White Stripes frontman himself, the legendary guitarist has, in fact, produced a new track called “Leck Mich Im Arsch” for Insane Clown Posse. For proof, we submit the photograph above, the complete release that accompanied the clip below, and the video itself.

Here’s the description that came with the video, complete with details about the song’s origins (which date back to 1782, believe it or not) and the release:

What do The Insane Clown Posse, Third Man Records, and Mozart have in common?

Back in ’82, ahem, 1782, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart wrote a piece that’s been left out of the spotlight ever since. The title of the piece is “Leck Mich Im Arsch” or literally translated to English as “Lick me in the arse.” Understandably this piece has figuratively been swept under the rug. So who better to give this piece it’s due respect than the wildly successful, much misunderstood, and divisive Southwest Detroit rappers Insane Clown Posse?

With fellow Southwest Detroit-born Jack White at the production helm and musical backing by Nashville’s very own Jeff the Brotherhood, this 2011 version of “Leck Mich Im Arsch” marries Mozart’s melody (and lyrics sung in operatic German) with ICP’s poignant lyrical addition in English and Jeff the B’s monster-riffs, letting the whole thing tie together in the most beautiful of ways.

The 7″ single and iTunes digital download of “Leck Mich Im Arsch” will be available for sale on September 13th. One-hundred Tri-color versions of the single will be available from the Third Man Rolling Record Store at the MI Fest in Brooklyn, Michigan on September 17th and another 50 Tri-colors will be randomly inserted into mail orders dispatched by Third Man Records.

UPDATE: You can now stream “Leck Mich Im Arsch” courtesy of Third Man Records:
