Jack White Records Trippy Theme Song for Maya Rudolph/Martin Short Show

Ready for a funky funk of a time? Listen to the theme song Jack White wrote for Maya Rudolph and Martin Short's new variety show. Better yet, watch Maya & Marty when it premieres tonight on NBC at 10 p.m. ET.

Forget about his Beyoncé collab! This song has everything: drums by White, organ by Dean Fertita (Dead Weather), Dominic Davis on bass, and Lillie Mae Rische and Fats Kaplin on guitar. It's delightfully quirky and bouncy and will have you doing weird things like blowing bubbles in your chocolate milk or perhaps leaving work early to get ready for the Maya & Marty debut tonight. That's a thing, right? Like, I can totally leave early? Okay, let me know, boss reading this.

According to Third Man Records (Jack's label), it's the first time he's written for TV, which is surprising because the man is prolific.
