(hennemusic) Jack White successfully delivered on his plans to issue the "world's fastest-released record in the history of mankind" as part of Record Store Day on Saturday.

White's plan was to record a live version of the title track from his upcoming album, "Lazaretto", in front of a live audience at his Third Man Records label offices in Nashville, have the masters pressed at a local facility and shipped back to Third Man for public sale was set for 6 hours - and he did it in just under 4 hours.

Shortly after 10 am Saturday, White took the stage to record the song and the clock started ticking. Following "Lazaretto", White recorded the B-side - a cover of Elvis Presley's 1969 song "Power Of My Love."

During the Record Store Day event, White posted a photo from the pressing plant with the first single, accompanied by two police officers who provided escort for the occasion.
