Last week Stephen Colbert hosted a week of music called Stephest Colbchella ‘011 on The Colbert Report. Throughout the week, Colbert talked to Jack White about his record label, Third Man Records. By week’s end Colbert had a full blown return to music with the follow-up to his first single “Charlene (I’m Right Behind You)” with his song “Charlene II (I’m Over You)”.
Colbert performed the song with the Black Belles, who are a band currently kicking around Third Man and performed “Charlene I” as the B-Side of the record.
Then the following day, White and Colbert pulled into the Highline Ballroom parking lot of NYC with the Belles to perform the song in front of people as the red, white, and blue colored vinyl was sold to any fans that wanted some.
There’s also a great archive of photos from the Highline appearance here.
