It took Jack White three hours, 55 minutes, and 21 seconds to set a new world record Saturday for the fastest-released album.

As a part of Record Store Day festivities, White performed the title track of his upcoming album, Lazaretto, due June 10, for a small crowd in Nashville, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Immediately after White’s performance, master recordings of the show were delivered to United Record Pressing, which began pressing vinyl 45s using pictures of the show as sleeves.

Fans who stuck around were able to buy recordings of the concert they had just heard hours before.

Swiss polka group Vollgas Kompanie held the previous record for releasing a live album one day after they recorded it, Rolling Stone reports.
