Mozart gets an unexpected rework

Insane Clown Posse have just released the results of an unexpected musical collaboration with Jack White, which you can listen to via Soundcloud below.

'Lick Mich am Arsch' was originally composed by Mozart as a humorous canon to be sung at private dinner parties but has been revamped by the Detroit rap duo, with production from the former White Stripes singer and instrumentation by JEFF the Brotherhood.

The song which translates to ‘Lick My Ass’ in German came into fruition after White ran into the duo unexpectedly at an airport. After initially failing to recognise them, Jack warmed to the idea of a collaboration stating their website as an object of his curiosity.

"Some stuff I think is genius, some stuff I don’t understand at all, but I always find myself going back there and seeing what you're up to".

Genius or not, the song will be released as a limited edition single on White’s very own Third Man Records, but can also be heard here:
