Jack White to make 'world's fastest released record' for Record Store Day
Jack White is set to record and release a record in one day to celebrate this year's Record Store Day.
White will record the title track from his second solo album "Lazaretto" onstage in the 'blue room' during a show at his Third Man Records base in Nashville at 10am local time, recording a direct-to-acetate limited edition live version.
The special recording take place on April 19, Record Store Day. When White finishes recording, the masters will be taken to local record plant United Record Pressing, who will make up the 45rpm singles and the sleeves will be printed from photos taken of the recording. The records will then be sold back at Third Man Records and will continue to be printed and sold as long as there are fans waiting to buy them.
Jack White will release Lazaretto on June 9. White's second solo album is the follow up to his 2012 debut Blunderbuss and will be released by White's own label Third Man and XL Recordings.

To celebrate the release of the album, Third Man will release a limited edition album pressed on split-colour blue and white vinyl with exclusive album art. It will be packaged with a photo and a 7-inch single featuring two early demos of songs "Alone In My Home" and "Entitlement", which feature in their finished form on the album.
