Jack White-Produced Insane Clown Posse Song: What Our Company Expert Has to Say

When we got the news in our Inbox this morning, we were nonplussed: what kind of shenanigans are these, Jack White?

But Camille Dodero over at our sister paper the Village Voice (who has been called the "Barbara Walters of the Juggalo world" puts it in context:

These guys have more in common than you think. For one, Detroit. For two, Jack White recently divorced and has a history of publicly collaborating with his romantic partners, Violent J just recently ended a long relationship with Infomercial superstar Sugar Slam. Jack White clearly relishes the predictably boring "head explodes" reactions to his bonkers projects, Insane Clown Posse exist. Probably the most surprising thing about this collaboration is that Jeff the Brotherhood ended up on here, but then again, Nashville is small.

The song samples "underground" Mozart, titled "Leck Mich Im Arsch" or literally translated to English as "Lick me in the arse." (Yes, purportedly. There's a Wiki page about it, for real.) It, uh, "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," according to the press release.

It will be on iTunes September 13 and on vinyl with a B-Side Third Man "Mountain Girl," which is then about "a shotgun wedding, meth problems and moonshine...all pretty common-fare for a twangy country song birthed in Nashville.
