Jack White Breaks World Record, Officially Drops New Single “Lazaretto”


If you’re a Jack White fan, then you undoubtedly already know that the Nashville-based singer attempted and succeeded in breaking the world record for fastest studio to store record release over the weekend, as part of a Record Store Day engagement at his own Third Man Records. Completed in a jaw-dropping three hours, 55 minutes, and 21 seconds, the special live mono edition of “Lazaretto,” the title track from White’s forthcoming sophomore solo release, featured a cover of Elvis Presley’s “Power of My Love” as its b-side. Hot on the heels of the RSD stunt, White has dropped the official studio version of the track, along with an unveiling of Lazaretto‘s tracklisting.

After the jump, check out an extended video recap of the world’s fastest record, and listen to Jack’s new single. You can catch the singer live this summer at both the nearby Bonnaroo and Forecastle music festivals (enter to win tickets to the latter right here).
