The CBC recently assembled a panel of its producers and hosts to compose a list of its country’s 25 greatest singers ever, selecting k.d. lang for the top spot. “Apologies to Jeff Buckley, but lang’s cover of Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’ is now the definitive version and everyone needs to stay away from singing it forever and ever. It will never get better than this," says the CBC. "lang sings from the gut and the heart, and it’s perfection." On April 21, lang will be inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame during the 42nd Annual Juno Awards; she also will perform that evening.
About this Album
Four-time Grammy Award winner and eight-time Juno Award winner k.d. lang releases her first-ever career retrospective, Recollection, 25 years after the release of her debut recording. This two-disc version features 22 of lang’s most beloved recordings including an all-new interpretation of the Leonard Cohen classic “Hallelujah,” which has become a moving highlight of her live performances; the Guardian calls her rendition “mesmerising: she reaches into the air, plucking the tiniest note from within her huge range, bends double, before throwing her head back and unleashing her pitch-perfect roar.”
Recollection comes on the heels of lang’s critically acclaimed 2008 Nonesuch release, Watershed, hailed by Rolling Stone as “first-rate singer-songwriter music” and Interview magazine as lang’s "biggest album yet.” The record debuted in Billboard’s Top Ten upon its release and marked lang’s first time assuming the role of producer in addition to writer, singer, and multi-instrumentalist.
Referred to as “the greatest female singer in the whole world” by fellow Canadian Michael Bublé, lang has had a distinguished 25-year career. In addition to a fruitful collaboration with Tony Bennett, she has performed alongside musical luminaries including Roy Orbison, Bonnie Raitt, Elton John, and Loretta Lynn. She sang at the closing ceremonies of the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary and has contributed music to the soundtracks of several films including Even Cowgirls Get the Blues, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, and Happy Feet. In addition to her music career, lang has also appeared in a number of films including Salmonberries, The Black Dahlia, and Eye of the Beholder. In 1996, lang received Canada’s highest civilian honor, the Order of Canada.
