Jack White cuts single in four hours for Record Store Day

Jack White has recorded, cut and sold a seven-inch single in four hours, as part of the celebrations for Record Store Day.
White took to the stage at his Third Man Records' store in Nashville at 10:00 on Saturday and played two songs. They were cut directly to an acetate disc, which was rushed to a pressing plant. The finished records were on sale within three hours and 55 minutes.
The ex-White Stripes frontman claimed to have set a world record as a result.
Guinness World Records says Swiss polka trio Vollgas Kompanie currently hold the title for "fastest album release", having issued their album Live on 16 August, 2008, the day after it was recorded.
British rock band Marillion have the record for "fastest music DVD release", taking just 10 hours to film, edit and press copies of their concert movie Clocks Already Ticking.
