Jack White can’t marry a lady, it seems, without making sweet music with her, too—literally. While the White Stripes frontman’s longtime gig with ex-wife Meg has been usurped lately by some 987 additional side projects, he recently somehow found time to produce the full-length solo debut of his current wife, British-born supermodel Karen Elson, at his own Third Man Studios in Nashville. The fruits of their spousely labor, The Ghost Who Walks, are due this summer.
Elson is not entirely new to music, having previously performed with the star-studded art-cabaret collective Citizens Band and dueted on Serge Gainsbourg’s delicious sonic-soft-porn coo “Je T’aime…Moi Non Plus” with Cat Power. And now Ghost‘s title track, a dusky, acoustic murder ballad, has its own video. Is it just us, or does this crew perambulate with spirits a lot?
What do you think? Are you eager to hear the rest come summer? And does Jack White have Matrix-like abilities to bend space and time? Maybe he just sleeps when he blinks.
