Former model and singer/songwriter Karen Elson has released a... well... completely bizarre music video to accompany her (also strange) song "The Truth is in the Dirt" off of her debut album The Ghost Who Walks. The video is somewhat obscure plot-wise, but is full of ghosts, people made up like corpses, and candles, among other assorted morbid imagery. It fits in almost perfectly with the topically obtuse but wonderfully moody and dark song. It's all very interesting and different, to say the least, and definitely worth a look.
Karen Elson is currently in the last stages of a European tour and will be returning to the states in October for a festival and some dates with the T-Bone Burnett's Speaking Clock Revue. Her album The Ghost Who Walks is available now on Third Man Records.
