K.D. Lang Gives Her Classic 'Ingnue' a Fresh 25th-Anniversary Spin


Johnson, Kevin C., St Louis Post-Dispatch (MO)


Revisiting her signature "Ingnue" album on its 25th anniversary is something k.d. lang had been anticipating. But she's not one to flip out over how much time has passed. ("Ingnue" was released in March 1992, if you're doing the math.)

"I'm not that attached to time, you know?" lang says. "I'm not somebody who's particularly sad about growing older. I've had so many life experiences after that record was released."

"The audience has had a relationship with this record for 25 years. I don't want to superimpose my experiences over them. I want them to approach it from their own experiences," lang says.

"Ingnue" came about at an interesting time for lang. She had just finished "Shadowland," her 1988 debut album that was decidedly country, complete with contributions from Loretta Lynn and Kitty Wells.

"At the time, I was switching from my country music liaison," she says. "I was never really a country music person. I just got enamored with it and wanted to return to the music that influenced me: jazz vocalists. …
