White Stripes, Raconteurs and Dead Weather singer/guitarist Jack White has confirmed that he recorded a collaboration with rap icon Jay-Z.

White told British GQ that the two got together and recorded a track a few weeks ago, and though no date has been announced for the track’s release, White confirmed the track exists and is “unbelievable-sounding.”

“I just did a record with Jay-Z,” said White. “We did a song together a few weeks ago. It was incredible. I played him something that I’ve been kicking around for a while and he immediately came out with words for it. It’s unbelievable-sounding.”

The collaboration isn’t particularly surprising given that the rapper and rocker have complimented each other over the past few months in the news. Of White, Jay-Z says:

“Jack White, he can do it all,” he said to Clash Magazine. “He’s a renaissance man. I like anyone who I’m working with to bring their flavour and their energy to the track, or else why get them? If I bring a person in, they are free to do whatever.”

White similarly lauded Hova a few months ago in an interview:

He said: “I feel like I’m a lot more to do with Jay-Z than I do with the Black Keys. And I don’t know what that is, it’s just a feeling.

“I love hip-hop if it’s done with a sense of the blues, even if the person who is creating it isn’t thinking that at all. I think Jay-Z is just incredible. ‘The Black Album’ is one of the best albums of the decade.”

As far as partnerships go, this should be amazing.
