During an intimate acoustic Beck performance at Nashville’s Basement East, Jack White pretended to be the “Where It’s At” singer at the beginning of the show.

“Hello ladies and gentlemen, I’m Beck. I’m gonna play you one of my favorite songs from the 1990s that I wrote,” said White as he began the bit.

White proceeded to play a part of “Tubthumping” by Chumbawamba and “I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)” by The Proclaimers. Beck entered the stage after a short period and asked Jack what he was doing. White jokingly quipped he “warmed it up for you” and even tuned Beck’s guitar. Footage of the exchange was posted the Third Man Record’s Instagram page.

White has recently been busy with his own musical solo endeavors. Fear of the Dawn will be released on April 8 and Entering Heaven Alive on July 22. So far, White has released songs from both albums, including lead single “Taking Me Back,” “Fear of the Dawn” and “Love Is Selfish.”

To support his new album releases, White will be embarking on his ‘Supply Chain Issues Tour’ across North America, which kicks off on April 8 in his hometown of Detroit.
