Becky Stark of Lavender Diamond and actor John C. Reilly, who perform as Becky and John, have released their latest single "I'll Be There If You Ever Want" on Jack White's Third Man Records.

Becky says that she loves performing the upbeat, twangy country song with John because of how much fun it is and its overwhelmingly positive lyrics. "It's about how there is nothing that will ever stop us from being there for each other. When we sing it, it always makes me feel so strong," she says. "I love singing a song that makes me feel stronger. John and I always end up laughing when we are singing it."

Random Notes

John C. Reilly shares Becky's feeling about the highly sunshiney track. "I love this song for its determined optimism and for its unabashed joy," he says. "When Becky and I sing it together, I feel like she's my sister and nothing can stop us. They don't write them like this anymore, but they really should. Who knows? Maybe one day we will!"

Becky and John's "I'll Be There If You Ever Want" is exclusively available to stream here at RollingStone.com

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
