In honor of Record Store Day, Jack White plans on recording, pressing and selling his single “Lazaretto” for what he is calling “the world’s fastest released record…in the history of mankind.”
Jack has it all planned out, starting with him taking stage at 10 a.m. on Record Store Day, April 19th, in the Blue Room in his Third Man Records storefront in Nashville, where he will cut the song. He will then have someone bring the record to United Record Pressing, where they will immediately begin making 45s. The records will go back to the store to be pressed and sold. The sleeves will be printed from pictures taken at the show. The records will be available only on Record Store Day and at Third Man.
- The song will also appear on Jack’s forthcoming LP, also called Lazaretto, which will be available on June 10th.
- The Guinness World Record holder for the Fastest Album Release currently belongs to the polka trio Vollgas Kompanie, who issued their album Live on August 16th – one day after they recorded it.
- Fans who want to witness the concert must obtain an “Ultra Ticket,” which is available only to Third Man Records Vault “Platinum Members.”
