    The Ghost Who Walks

    On her debut disc, The Ghost Who Walks, Karen Elson spins intriguingly unsettling tales of lost love, dashed hope, romantic betrayal and various crimes of passion witnessed only by the full moon. In a coolly inviting voice, strumming an acoustic guitar, she summons up a dark yet seductive atmosphere, an after-midnight world that's irresistibly alluring. The arrangements for her small band - featuring the virtuosic Jackson Smith on guitar, Elson's longtime collaborator Rachelle Garniez on accordion and vocals, and husband-producer Jack White on drums -- evoke the lonesome side of country (''Cruel Summer'') or the tormented side of the blues (''The Truth Is In the Dirt''), with eerie organ touches, and keening electric guitars.


    Until now, the British-born Elson has been better known as a top model, the face of ad campaigns for, among others, Armani, Prada, Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent's Poison. With her pale white skin and shocking red hair, she seems an almost otherworldly presence on any given glossy page. While she assiduously worked as the face of various brands, she conducted an altogether different life behind the scenes as a singer and songwriter, honing what has proven to be her considerable skills. In part, she learned by doing: for the last five years, she's been a member, alongside Garniez, in the Weimar-style cabaret of New York City-based art and music collective The Citizens Band. Two of her more theatrical tracks, ''100 Years From Now'' and ''Mouths To Feed,'' inspired in part by author Tim Egan's dust bowl saga, The Worst Hard Time, were originally penned for her troupe, which combines bawdy entertainment with barbed political commentary.


    The Ghost Who Walks may not be drawn literally from Elson's life, but it does represent an aspect of her psyche she's been brave enough to explore: ''I'm very much interested in the dark side of things. In my life, truthfully, I've had a lot of bizarre and dark experiences that have definitely colored the way I think about a lot of personal things. The music I have always listened to as well has had a sorrowful, mournful, if not murderous, quality to it.'' She pauses to laugh. ''I'm not saying I would ever want to kill anybody, but sometimes love can drag you to the very depths of yourself and - my God - make you so desperate and forlorn. I really respond to songs that write about that. Hank Williams, for crying out loud, speaking of being forlorn and forsaken -- there's a song I just heard of his, an early demo, that really resonated with me. Those songs move me in a way that happy go lucky songs don't.''

    Milk And Honey (On Sale)

    Karen Elson delivers a haunting version of the Jackson C. Frank gem "Milk and Honey" that brims with atmosphere and undeniable feeling. The b-side is a trucking version of Bonnie Dobson's "Winter's Going" that warms to the core. Another direct hit from Miss Elson.

    The Ghost Who Walks/Stolen Roses

    Karen Elson's The Ghost Who Walks marks the debut solo release from the British singer/songwriter. Her transformation from fashion's favorite redheaded ingÉnue to beguiling chanteuse has been something of a slow burn. In 2003 she provided vocals for a version of Robert Plant's ''Last Time I Saw Her'' and in 2006 she recorded an English language version of ''Je T'Aime..Moi Non Plus'' (''I Love You... Me Neither'') with Cat Power for a Serge Gainsbourg tribute album, but her main musical outlet has been as a founding member of New York City cabaret The Citizens Band, a downtown collective of musicians, performers, artists and acrobats whose lively Weimar-esque performances have enjoyed successful theatrical runs of their politically thematic shows.


    Writing almost exclusively in the sanctuary of a closet in her bedroom, Karen's songwriting blossomed. A fledgling songwriter might naturally be nervous to play their work for a spouse but for Karen the trepidation was exacerbated by her husband's own talent. It took many months of cajoling for Karen to play Jack White her songs but his reaction was immediate: let's get into the studio.


    Karen has already won accolades for her stunning voice, but The Ghost Who Walks is still bound to surprise those who've never seen her perform with her cabaret troupe. The songwriting is especially impressive and, as something of a music obsessive since an early age, Karen sites a long list of influences and inspirations, including Nick Cave, PJ Harvey, Sandy Denny, Opal and Rain Parade. The track The Ghost Who Walks, also the title of her forthcoming album, is a haunting murder ballad but the title came from a high school nickname which Karen endured before embarking on her fashion career. It's an apt title for an elegant and haunting album.

    Thunder On The Mountain/ Dust On The Bible

    Third Man and Nonesuch Records announced the release of the new album, The Party Aint Over, from Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Wanda Jackson earlier this fall. They are now proud to bring you the single Thunder On The Mountain b/w Dust On The Bible.



    Known around the globe as ''The Queen Of Rock'' and ''The First Lady Of Rockabilly,'' Wanda Jackson has joined with friend and producer Jack White, to bring you this latest taste of her signature flavor. The tracks feature Jack White. Jack Lawrence (The Dead Weather/The Greenhornes/The Raconteurs), Carl Broemel (My Morning Jacket), Patrick Keeler (The Greenhornes, Raconteurs), Ashley Monroe, Jackson Smith and Karen Elson, to name just a few.



    ''Thunder On The Mountain'' is a particularly exceptional track. Originally penned by Bob Dylan and chosen for Mrs. Jackson by the poet himself, his rockabilly fever dream is given new life by the songstress.

    Bathtub Love Killings

    Bathtub Love Killings is the debut solo LP from Olivia Jean, the
    multi-instrumentalist who cut her teeth in the Third Man stable backing
    folks as varied as Karen Elson, Wanda Jackson and Jack White in
    addition to fronting the much-loved Black Belles. Jean has accrued a
    lifetime of experience in a few short years, from highlight performances
    on The Colbert Report, Conan, Late Show With David Letterman and
    the Grand Old Opry stage to having one of her songs used as the
    theme for the television series Elvira's Movie Macabre.


    Produced by Jack White, Bathtub Love Killings showcases Jean as a
    songwriting force to be reckoned with. Playing damn-near every instrument
    she could get her hands on, the result is a well-rounded, catchy record that's
    chockfull of ear worm moments.
