DETROIT, MI - JULY 29: Musician and former Detroit native Jack White throws out the first pitch prior to the start of the game between the Chicago White Sox and the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park on July 29, 2014 in Detroit, Michigan. The White Sox defeated the Tigers 11-4.

Jack White has teamed up with his hometown Detroit Tigers for a new 7-inch single.

White and an ad hoc group called The Brushoffs — featuring his regular bassist Dominic Davis, Raconteurs bandmate Brendan Benson and Dirtbombs drummer/Third Man Records executive Ben Blackwell — has recorded a new song called “Strike Out,” while the B-side features an interview with retired Tigers star and current broadcaster Kirk Gibson.

Photos for the single, which is pressed in the Tigers colors of blue and orange, were taken by pitcher Daniel Norris. A purchase of the single comes with a ticket for the Tigers September 24 game against the Minnesota Twins. A portion of the proceeds go to the Kirk Gibson Foundation and the Detroit Tigers Foundation.

White recently revealed he’s been recording his next solo album in New York and Los Angeles.
