The White Elephant Sessions is a rarities and demo version album by American Christian band Jars of Clay, released in conjunction with the band's third studio album If I Left the Zoo. Several of the tracks come straight from the demo recording sessions for If I Left The Zoo, entitled the Tweed Horse Sessions.


The title and cover

The title is a play on the fact that a white elephant is a rarity, and the cover of If I Left the Zoo had a grey elephant on it.

This album depicts a similar cover, except that the background is primarily red where If I Left the Zoo's background is predominantly blue and the elephant on the cover of this album is white and not grey (and the elephant is facing the other direction).
