Karen Elson

Releases Album & Announces June Tour

Karen Elson will be taking the songs from her highly anticipated debut release The Ghost Who Walks on the road for a 7-city series of dates in June which will include a stop in Los Angeles and a special appearance in New York City with Grizzly Bear & Band of Horses.

The Ghost Who Walks was recorded at Third Man Studios in Tennessee with Jack White as producer, and while it marks Karen’s solo debut, she has spent 6 years as a founding member of New York City-based political cabaret The Citizens Band and has been involved in several musical projects over the past few years, including adding her vocals to tracks for Robert Plant and recording a duet with Cat Power for a Serge Gainsbourg tribute album (“Je Taime Moi Non Plus”).

This incredibly elegant and haunting album features 12 songs – 11 original compositions by Karen and 1 cover of a song by her Citizens Band cohort Rachelle Garniez, and will be released via Third Man/XL Recordings on May 25th. The first single off her debut release, title track “The Ghost Who Walks,” is available now as a download on iTunes and on 7” vinyl via Third Man Records.
