Talk about an overachiever! American singer Jack White tried to set a record for the world’s fastest-released record. The 38-year-old singer played his new single, Lazaretto, in front of hundreds of fans in Nashville, Tennessee in the US, on Record Store Day – an annual celebration of independently owned record stores and vinyl culture. Three hours, 55 minutes and 21 seconds later he released a copy of the performance on a limited run of vinyl. The singer/guitarist calls it the “world’s fastest-released record”, but don’t expect his feat to end up in Guinness World Records – Jack says he doesn’t even know if anyone else has tried it. His stunt was just to promote Record Store Day and Lazaretto. Jack has been a member of bands such as The White Stripes, The Dead Weather and The Raconteurs.
