Reissue Of k.d. lang’s ‘Ingénue’ To Be Released

NONESUCH TO REISSUE K.D. LANG’S ‘GRAMMY-WINNING BREAKTHROUGH ALBUM ‘INGÉNUE’

    

   Nonesuch will release k.d. lang’s INGÉNUE: 25TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION on July 7, 2017, to celebrate the double platinum-selling, Grammy Award–winning album’s silver anniversary.

 This new two-disc set includes remastered versions of the album’s original ten tracks, including its huge hit ‘Constant Craving,’ and the second disc features eight previously unreleased performances from lang’s 1993 MTV Unpluggedepisode, recorded in New York City’s famed Ed Sullivan Theater. The LP version of INGÉNUE: 25TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION will be available on August 18.

 INGÉNUE was k.d. lang’s fifth album, following a quartet of records that pushed the boundaries of country music. Released in 1992, the album was the first of entirely new material. lang wrote most of the songs with her longtime collaborator Ben Mink; Greg Penny co-wrote ‘So It Shall Be,’ and all three produced the album.

 As James Reed writes in the 25th Anniversary Edition liner note, INGÉNUE is still such a mysterious body of work … You’d be hard-pressed to pinpoint when the album was released or even made and where. It slinks out of the speakers with luminous melodies in search of a soundtrack, its choruses as vast and sweeping as the Canadian prairies where lang grew up in Consort, Alberta. A strange brew of torch and twang, of pop gloss and jazz sophistication—and shot through with Eastern European flourishes … lang was fond of calling it ‘post-nuclear cabaret’ back then.

 Called ‘the greatest female singer in the whole world’ by fellow Canadian Michael Bublé, lang has had a distinguished career. In addition to a fruitful collaboration with Tony Bennett, she has performed alongside luminaries including Roy Orbison, Bonnie Raitt, Elton John, and Loretta Lynn. lang has contributed music to the soundtracks of several films, including Even Cowgirls Get the Blues, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, and Happy Feet. She has also appeared in a number of films, including Salmonberries, The Black Dahlia, and Eye of the Beholder. In 1996, lang received Canada’s highest civilian honor, the Order of Canada.
