    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. k.d. 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. The New York Times, in reviewing the album, praised its “extravagantly torchy romanticism,” adding that lang’s “genre-bending is a musicianly accomplishment, but her ability to tug heartstrings is a hard-won gift.”

  4. On the 25th anniversary of her platinum selling Ingénue album and the huge hit “Constant Craving”, which launched her into stardom around the world, k.d. lang is about to hit the road solo across Canada. Fans in 17 cities coast to coast, from Victoria, B.C. to St. John’s, NL, will have the pleasure of experiencing lang live as she brings her singular singing style  to classics  from  her 30 year  repertoire.  These memorable evenings take place over 23 shows from August 12 to September 19, 2017, in a tour presented by AEG Live. 

    Tickets go on sale Friday, March 3 at 10am local time. Fan club members can purchase tickets during the presale as of Thursday, March 2 at 10 am local time. Tickets are available at AEGLive.com.

    2017 is a landmark year for lang, as it represents the 25th anniversary of the release of her groundbreaking Ingénue album and the 150th anniversary of Canada. The convergence of these two anniversaries is momentous for the singer, as she’s an important part of the fabric of music in Canada, thanks to her original music, the music that’s inspired her and the music of other artists that she has covered in her own unique renditions. As a result of her deep connection to Canadian music, she’s been invited to be one of Canada’s 150th Ambassadors. 
     
    Fans excited for the tour know she is renowned for her live shows, prompting the New York Times’ Stephen Holden to observe: “Few singers command such perfection of pitch. Her voice, at once beautiful and unadorned and softened with a veil of smoke, invariably hits the middle of a note and remains there”. 
     
    As part of this new tour, in addition to performing songs from Ingénue, lang will perform hits from her 2004 album  Hymns  of the  49th  Parallel,  which  featured  lang  singing  the  songs  that  define  her  country  by fellow Canadians, including: Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, Neil Young, Jane Siberry, Ron Sexsmith, and Bruce Cockburn.
