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.”
