Just as anticipation for his impending TBS talk show is beginning to ramp up, Conan O’Brien will release two records on independent label Third Man. And They Call Me Mad? will be released digitally and as a 7-inch vinyl record, the A side featuring O’Brien’s spoken word take on the story of Frankenstein, and the B side an interview with Third Man Records’ founder, Jack White. It’s available for pre-order at Third Man’s website, and will ship Aug. 24.
O’Brien recorded the album, Conan O’Brien Live at Third Man, with The Legally Prohibited Band on June 10, 2010, at Third Man Records in Nashville. Featuring rock and rockabilly, with White and 7 Nation Army playing on the song “20 Flight Rock,” the 12-inch vinyl is already available at the Third Man website.
Both recordings will reportedly be available on iTunes “early next week.”
