C&L's Late Nite Music Club With Jack White

Jack White broke a pretty obscure record the other day, and, oddly enough, he did so by making a record.

On his own label, Third Man Records, White recorded and released a single in just under four hours. That means tracked, produced, pressed, and sold all in half of a workday, which is pretty impressive considering how long the record production process can take. For his efforts, White is now credited with breaking the world record for the record-to-release single, which was previously held by Vollgas Kompanie, a Swiss polka band which, according to Guinness, released a live album the day after it was cut. Although White did not release a full album, his performance was also live and, as a work that was pressed and released by a label, still counts as the world's fastest record. I'm not entirely sure if this only counts for a physical release or digital download, but they were both put out at the same time, so we'll just have to wait for someone who doesn't do both to see if still counts. Lazaretto will be the first single for White's upcoming album of the same name, which I am also pretty excited about. One last disclaimer for you all at the music club: the posted version of the single is the studio version, which was not the version that White recorded and released in four hours (but it still sounds really good).
