In one of the more unusual musical pairings of recent times (okay it’s just goddamn weird), Jack White has expanded upon his post White Stripes production career by teaming up with Insane Clown Posse to produce a new single for them which has the delightful German title of ‘Leck Mich Im Arsch’ which if you haven’t figured it out all by yourself, means ‘Lick Me In The Arse’ in English.
White’s Third Man Records says of the release “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 b-side “Mountain Girl” finds Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope telling tall tales about a shotgun wedding, meth problems and moonshine…all pretty common-fare for a twangy country song birthed in Nashville.”
We know you’ll want to so conveniently we have linked the song’s Soundcloud for you, but we’re afraid to report that the song is a stinker. Sure it will probably have wide appeal amongst 15 year old boys, who do comprise the bulk of Insane Clown Posse’s following, but it marries up vocals from a Mozart opera with smutty lyrics that predictably frequently refer to licking arses.
Third man tells us that The 7″ single and iTunes digital download of “Leck Mich Im Arsch” will be available for sale on September 13th.Write a Letter to the Editor
