Ever wondered what was happening with the former White Stripes lead guitarist, Jack White? Well he is just breaking world records, you know, extremely casually. As if Detroit wasn’t already full of reasons to be proud of resident rock god Jack White, the Dead Weather frontman just topped their list off yet again by scoring a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records.
White’s record, you might ask? Well, on April 19th (which was also Record Store Day) in the Blue Room of Nashville’s Third Man studio, White recorded a limited edition 7-inch vinyl of his upcoming album’s eponymous track, Lazaretto. He also performed many other fan favorites such as “Dead Leaves and The Dirty Ground,” “Hotel Yorba” and a take on “Hello Operator.”
In just three hours, fifty five minutes and twenty one seconds after performing, White himself sold the 7-inch title track to the awaiting fans, earning himself the World Record of the fastest released record (a record previously held by the Swiss Polka trio, Vollgas Kompaine). Lazaretto, the album, by Jack White is currently set to be released on June 10, 2014 in the United States. In the meantime, you can listen to the pleasingly spastic, record-making track from the album below!
