Karen Elson has just announced the addition of an intimate acoustic show on October 18th in New York City. Karenâ€™s stripped down set for this special performance at Manhattanâ€™s Rockwood Music Hall at 8 pm will feature the accompaniment of band members Rachelle Garniez and Jackson Smith.
In addition to this latest show, Karen will also be joining T Bone Burnett in the premiere of The Speaking Clock Revue â€“ a multi-artist concert extravaganza â€“ on October 16th at the Wang Center in Boston and October 20th at the Beacon Theater in New York City. Both evenings of the Revue will also feature performances by Elton John & Leon Russell, John Mellencamp, Elvis Costello, Gregg Allman, Ralph Stanley, Jeff Bridges, Punch Brothers and newcomers The Secret Sisters. Furthermore, Neko Case and Jim James from My Morning Jacket will join the lineup in Boston and New York respectively.
Elsonâ€™s newest single, â€œThe Truth Is In The Dirt,â€ from her critically acclaimed album The Ghost Who Walks which was released in May via Third Man/ XL Recordings, is currently available digitally, as well as on 7″ vinyl from Third Man Records, backed with a previously unreleased cover of Donovanâ€™s 1966 song â€œSeason Of The Witch.”
Check out the stunningly eery and beautifully creepy video for this latest single, which was directed by Maximilla Lukacs and Sarah Sophie Flicker – two filmmakers who go by the name The Belles Of The Black Diamond Field – here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ef2v6heIrLA
