Jack White has penned and produced a funky instrumental theme song for Maya Rudolph and Martin Short’s new NBC variety show, Maya and Marty.

With White on the drums, the tracks also taps Third Man Records musicians Dean Ferita on the organ, Dominic Davis on bass, Fats Kaplin and Liile Mae Rische on the guitar. The new sitcom marks the first time White has written music for a TV show.

Maya and Marty premieres tonight, May 31st, on NBC at 10 p.m. ET. The program was borne out of Rudolph's one-off variety show, The Maya Rudolph Show, which aired in 2014. The new series will feature the two Saturday Night Live alums participating in sketches and musical numbers alongside celebrity guests.
