For the record, ‘Walking With a Ghost‘ is an original song by Tegan and Sara. An impressive cover, however, was released by the talents of The White Stripes a year after its release on ‘So Jealous‘, a Tegan and Sara album released in 2004.
The White Stripes released a six track EP released in December 2005, six months after Get Behind Me Satanfeaturing a cover of ‘Walking With A Ghost’ as the opening single. Note of this tribute was given graciously on the White Stripes EP, noting Sara Quin as the original song writer.
Although written mostly by Sara, the twin sisters share credit to the creation of the timeless little ditty.
