Jack White's Third Man Records Creates First 3 RPM Record


Third Man Records head Jack White celebrated the third anniversary of his label by releasing the world's first 3 RPM record. The special edition release was a party favor for those who attended the label party in Nashville.

The record contains every "Blue Series" single from Third Man. In the label's own words, the LP is "easy to play but impossible to hear . . . we estimate it would take 333 days of 33 hours training per day for your finger, hand, and arm muscles to spin at a continuous speed of 3 rpm for X hours and X minutes."

A number of videos have surfaced online showing people attempting, and failing, to listen to the record.

On April 24 White will release his debut solo album, Blunderbuss, via Third Man Records/Columbia.
