Karen Elson ‘Milk and Honey’

Singer covers the late Jackson C. Frank

In this black-and-white live clip, multitalented British singer-songwriter and model Karen Elson presents a sparse, chilling rendition of Jackson C. Frank's "Milk and Honey." With quick shots of Elson and her accompanying guitarist, the images fade, morph and drift with each other as Elson sings in front of an old-fashioned fireplace. Originally written by the late folk singer Frank, Elson encountered "Milk and Honey" in a different way.

"I first heard a version recorded by Sandy Denny ,and it's haunted me ever since," she says. "I covered the song live and it began to take on a whole new meaning. The lyrics are sorrowful, yet a poetic take on the season's changing and love. It reminds me of a Rilke poem."
