JACK WHITE & THIRD MAN RECORDS PRESENT: THE WORLD’S FASTEST RELEASED RECORD & RECORD STORE DAY 2014

On April 19th, Record Store Day, Jack will record the World’s Fastest Released Record, studio-to-store, in the history of mankind.

At 10am in the morning, Jack will take the stage in Third Man’s blue room and record direct-to-acetate what will serve as the limited edition version of his next single, a live rendition of the title track from his upcoming LP Lazaretto. The masters will then be rushed over to United Record Pressing, who will immediately begin pressing 45s. The sleeves will be printed from pictures taken at the show. The finished records will be whisked back to Third Man to sell to awaiting fans. All in the same day. All in a matter of mere hours. As long as there are fans in line waiting to buy the single, United will continue to press and deliver them to Third Man to sell. Even if it takes all day.

In addition, Whirlwind Heat will appear at Third Man to play their first live show since 2006 (and likely their last ever), as their TMR classic Do Rabbits Wonder? LP is reissued on a variety of colored vinyl for Record Store Day. A great selection of local Nashville vendors will also be on hand to keep everyone well-fed and refreshed throughout the day… and there will, as always, be some surprises.

Tickets for this whole day —“Ultra Tickets” — are extremely limited and will be available exclusively through The Third Man Records Vault to Platinum Members only starting at 3pm CT today, April 3rd. Ultra Ticket holders will get to watch the Jack’s live recording of his World’s Fastest Record, Whirlwind Heat’s afternoon performance, and will receive copies of both The World’s Fastest Record 7” and the Whirlwind Heat Record Store Day LP release–all without having to wait in line! As attendees leave at the end of the day, they will pick up their bag with both RSD releases. No lines. No stress.

For those who can’t score tickets, The World’s Fastest Record will be made available for sale from the Third Man Records Nashville store front as soon as copies are pressed. Anybody who shows up on April 19 during normal business hours wanting to purchase a copy will get one. Third Man promises to deliver records until all customers are satisfied (one per customer!). The World’s Fastest Record will ONLY be available at Third Man Records on Record Store Day. One time only!

Purchase Ultra Tickets for Record Store Day via The Vault Pre-Sale ticket store at 3pm CT today. Not a Vault member? Sign up HERE.
