"That's basically a hip-hop song," White told Jam! Music. "I wasn't going for it but I just found myself in the middle of it. I think I've done that a lot in my career and people haven't noticed. 'Icky Thump

' on the last album was a hip-hop track but I don't think anyone really categorizes that."
