k.d. lang makes confession tonight

Monday, April 11, 2011 – k.d. lang and the Siss Boom Bang will perform I Confess on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. The track is the lead single from "Sing it Loud," due out tomorrow on Nonesuch Records.

To celebrate its release, lang and her new band will play the album in its entirety tonight at Los Angeles' Troubadour and at (le) poisson rouge in New York City on Thursday, April 14. They'll appear on Good Morning America (April 14) and The View (April 15). On April 29, lang and the Siss Boom Bang will join KCRW for a live session at Apogee's Berkeley Street Studio, which will air on KCRW/Los Angeles' "Morning Becomes Eclectic" on May 16.

"Sing it Loud" is lang's first studio album since 2008's "Watershed," which debuted in the Top 10 of the Billboard 200, and her first record made entirely with a band of her own since her early albums with the Reclines. She and the Siss Boom Bang-comprising Joe Pisapia (a multi-instrumentalist who co-produced the album with lang and serves as musical director), Daniel Clarke (keyboards), Fred Eltringham (drums/percussion), Joshua Grange (baritone guitar, Dobro), and Lex Price (bass) - recorded it at Pisapia's Middletree Studios in Nashville.

"The second the band walked in, the energy was palpable," lang said. "'Sing it Loud' is actually probably the pinnacle of my creative life because it happened so fast, so naturally, and with so much joy."

CD reviews for k.d. lang

CD review - Sing It Loud Anyone who witnessed k.d. lang's 1986 American television debut on Late Night with David Letterman will never forget the sight of the Canadian firecracker kicking up her heels in a gingham dress, belting out the electrifying Turn Me Round while her band, the Reclines, provided an incendiary soundtrack and tore up the floorboards behind her. It was a frenetic performance that was ultimately paid off by the 1987 release of "Angel with a Lariat," which beautifully displayed lang's ...
CD review - A Truly Western Experience- 25th Anniversary Edition She came twirling out of Canada in 1987, pinching the cheeks of the Nashville establishment with a blend of countrypolitan vocals and rockin' Dave Edmunds-inspired rootsabilly. Before "Angel with a Lariat" appeared, Kathryn Dawn Lang had charmed her native land with television appearances, blistering live gigs and a nine-track album that coalesced her vision of country music. This crisp-sounding 15-track reissue, fleshed out with live cuts, a demo, and her debut single, including ...
CD review - Reintarnation The cover design echoes the Clash's "London Calling" and is a reminder of k.d. lang's punk sensibilities - and sense of humor.

It's the one-in-a-million voice that propelled lang into the mainstream music world, completely on her own terms, and in spite of her gender-bending image. And now after more than two decades of acclaimed CDs, lang is in a position to boast and reminisce a little. ...
