It’s no secret that Jack White and Beck–who rock similar style these days with the long hair/hat combo–have been musically interested in each other for quite awhile. For example, almost a decade ago, the two played a show in Ann Arbor, Michigan together.

Recently, the two have come together to lay down some tracks at White’s Third Man studios for the Blue Single Series. The tracks are a scorching number called “I Just Started Hating Some People Today” and “Blue Randy.”

According to the Third Man Records website, the tracks were recorded in 2011 in Nashville while Beck was working on new material for his next album. Beck conjured up the tracks while on his final day in town at the studio.

In another quirky Jack White-esque twist, the “Blue Randy” title has inspired Third Man Records to release a limited run of 100 tri-color 7-inches on June 2nd at Randy’s Records in Salt Lake City, Utah. For those diehard fans who can’t make it to the home of the “Greatest Snow On Earth,” 50 of will be randomly inserted in mail orders for the single placed through Third Man’s online store.

The Beck Blue Series single will be released May 28th. Listen to a snippet of “I Just Started Hating Some People Today” and the single b-side called “Blue Randy” at Third Man Records.
