Breaking up with Jack White doesn't seem to have severed model-turned-singer Karen Elson's creative ties to her former husband. This Saturday (April 21), Elson will be releasing a cover of Jackson C. Frank's "Milk and Honey" as a Record Store Day seven-inch via Jack's record label, Third Man. Now, a video for that track has arrived.

Watch a clip for the delicate, tremolo-tinged folk tune below. The black-and-white video is every bit as simple and sombre as the song itself, as it it shows Elson and a guitarist performing the song in a candle-filled room.

Elson told Rolling Stone, "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."
