Karen Elson is due to return to Europe in September for a string of dates, including a headline show at London's Bush Hall.
Karen Elson will be playing the songs from her critically acclaimed debut album The Ghost Who Walks at a headline show at London's Bush Hall, following on from her intimate London debut earlier in the year. She will then go on to play shows in Germany, Belgium, Holland, Switzerland, Italy and France.
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 originally by her Citizens Band cohort Rachelle Garniez, and was released via Third Man/XL Recordings on May 24th.
