Listen to Jack White’s Theme Song for NBC’s New Variety Show ‘Maya & Marty’
Saturday Night Live alumni Maya Rudolph and Martin Short will premiere their new variety show, Maya & Marty, on NBC tonight, and they’ve already brought along a substantial amount of musical cred.
Jack White wrote, produced and played drums on the show’s theme song, which also features organ by his Dead Weather bandmate Dean Fertita (Queens of the Stone Age, Iggy Pop’s Post Pop Depression). Dominic Davis contributed bass and Lillie Mae Rische and Fats Kaplin played guitar. Give it a listen below.
According to Third Man Records, it’s the first time White has written music for a TV show, but it’s not the first time he’s forayed into television. Earlier this year, he dropped by ABC’s The Muppets to sing the White Stripes’ “Fell in Love WIth a Girl” and cover Stevie Wonder with Kermit.
