Was k. d. lang’s newest album, Sing it Loud, released this April on your radar?
Perhaps I am not the singers’ target audience, because I learned of the album by complete chance rather than fandom. When I was picking up my Pike’s Place coffee at the Starbucks counter about a week ago, one of those free iTunes cards at was staring up at me. As a kid who heard “Constant Craving” on the airwaves during the era of candy-coated (and delicious!) soft rock and early hip-hop, I could not come to appreciate her. The lyrics were serious, the
music video black and white and tone frankly tragic!
