Seriously, I don’t know how Karen Elson does it. She puts up with Jack White‘s mad crazy genius antics, she’s an established singer and cabaret performer, she’s got that “supermodel” gig going for her, she’s going to be a mommy, and now on top of that she’s had the nerves of steel to stomach doing a collaboration with the unpredictable Cat Power.
Check out Karen and Chan‘s lovely (but slightly less orgasmic-sounding) version English-language version of the 1969 Serge Gainsbourg (featuring Jane Birkin) classic, “Je T’aime…Moi Non Plus” right here:
It comes off of the Monsieur Gainsbourg Revisited cover album featuring other top-name acts like Franz Ferdinand, Placebo (DOWNLOAD: “Ballad of Melody Nelson”), and The Kills. It comes out on the 27th of Feb on French label Barclay Records.
