  1. 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.

    case/lang/veirs

    Several years ago k.d. sent an email to the amazing Neko Case and acclaimed folk-country artist Laura Veirs saying simply, “I think we should make a record together.” The three musicians were admittedly very different and, at the time, barely more than acquaintances--but they did admire one another, and it instantly felt right. “She lit the flare,” says Case. “She shot it into the air and we said, ‘Let's do this.’ Laura and I both responded immediately. There was no question.”

    But now there is an answer. case/lang/veirs, a new album by three phenomenal, self-driven artists will be released June 17 on ANTI- Records with an extensive tour to follow.  case/lang/veirs features fourteen original songs written by the artists over a period of two-and-a-half years. It was recorded in Portland, OR where lang and Veirs both live, and produced by Tucker Martine with the group. Sessions commenced in lang’s loft with a view of Mount St. Helens, and in Veirs’ dining room and backyard studio.

    case/lang/veirs will be touring extensively this summer with dates already confirmed for the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, The Newport Folk Festival, and Brooklyn’s Prospect Park among others. See below for a full itinerary; additional dates will be announced soon.

    You can listen to the lead track, “Atomic Number,” here and pre-order the album here. See below for a full itinerary; additional dates will be announced soon.
