As we all know by now Jack White either doesn’t sleep or exists in a world where days last longer than 24 hours. The guy doesn’t seem to stop. He’s now decided to get his wife involved in this seemingly endless stream of writing, recording and releasing records. Not that his wife, the former model Karen Elson, lacks musical pedigree having recorded a duet with Cat Power along with a clutch of other lovely acoustic ditties (‘Coming Down’ is particularly nice).
Below is a live reading of the title track from her Jack White produced debut album, The Ghost Who Walks. The album is due out in the summer via XL/Third Man and the video is also directed by her hubbie (I believe he sewed the hem on her dress, but we’re awaiting clarification on that).
It’s a shame the guys in the band couldn’t be bothered to help out a bit. Lazy.
