Add spoken word recording artist to Conan O’Brien’s list of many accomplishments.
Third Man Records is releasing a spoken word 7” titled “And They Call Me Mad?” recorded by the talk show host in Nashville at the Third Man studios.
In June, O’Brien visited Third Man Records for a surprise performance during his “Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television Tour” where 300 fans enjoyed a concert by the comic and his band.
The special set of rockabilly and rock songs were recorded and released as a live album. The White Stripes’ Jack White joined O’Brien for a duet on the classic Eddie Cochran tune “20 Flight Rock.”
“And They Call Me Mad?” is O’Brien’s improvised take on the Frankenstein legend and the B side of the single is an interview with the funnyman conducted by White.
Proceeds will go to benefit ReTune Nashville.
