Daily Dose Pick: Karen Elson


On her debut album, Mrs. Jack White and former supermodel Karen Elson offers a collection of dark, country-tinged tunes that belie the fact she was ever known for anything else.

Produced by White in his Nashville-based Third Man Studios, The Ghost Who Walks features murder ballads and tales of lost love reminiscent of everyone from Cat Power and Jenny Lewis to PJ Harvey. The record also includes two tracks originally written for Elson’s superb political cabaret troupe the Citizens Band, while her backing band counts members of My Morning Jacket and the Dead Weather among its ranks.
