By now you've heard that over the weekend musical master, Jack White, made the world's fastest record. On Saturday, April 19, 2014, National Record Store Day, "Lazaretto," the title track from White's forthcoming album, was recorded in front of a small crowd at the artist's Third Man Records, manufactured and packaged at United Record Pressing, in three hours, 55 minutes, and 21 seconds.

The eventful day also marked the fifth anniversary of Third Man Records, with White wearing a swanky blue suit and a pair of blue suede shoes, to mark the occasion. White took to the stage and ripped into lead single, "Lazaretto," a fiery rock number with ferocious vocals. As White performs, men in lab coats lay the track down on the record.

Jack White also played a cover of Elvis Presley's "Power of my Love," for the B-side. Check out the cool recap video above that gives you an inside peak into the making of the "World's Fastest Released Record," and what had to be the best Record Store Day ever for the folks in Nashville.
