Listen To Jack White’s ‘Lazaretto’ Single

A.k.a the World’s Fastest Released Record.

Beyond the eBay gripes and discussions about the plural of vinyl, the outstanding story of Record Store Day 2014 was always going to be Jack White’s ‘Lazaretto’, a.k.a. the World’s Fastest Released Record of all time.

On April 19th, the Third Man Records boss recorded, mastered, pressed and sold the first copy of the song - taken from a new album of the same name - via his Nashville headquarters.

The song’s made its way online, with Sonic 102.9’s Al Ford playing the track 7 minute, 20 seconds into his story below, where he goes into Third Man to pick up his own personal copy of ‘Lazaretto’. Watch it being played on vinyl below.

Update: A studio version premiered just now on Zane Lowe’s Radio 1 show as a Hottest Record. Listen below.
