Record Store Day is happening on April 19 and it will also be a record-setting day for Jack White. The rocker is planning an ambitious stunt at the Nashville headquarters of his label, Third Man Records.
He is aiming to create “The World’s Fastest Released Record” for the holiday. The plan is to record a live version of his new single in Third Man’s “Blue Room” at 10 a.m., then deliver it down the road to the Nashville-based United Record Pressing, who will immediately press copies and return them back to Third Man to be sold to fans in a matter of hours.
The 10 a.m. recording session will be part of a larger concert for Third Man diehards, “platinum” members of the label’s “Vault” subscription service, who have exclusive access to purchase tickets to the event. Tickets are are now on sale at http://thirdmanstore.com/vault/vault-subscriptions/tmr-vault-platinum-subscription
