    Listen: k.d. lang Talks "Ingénue" with KCRW

    k.d. lang has brought her Ingénue Redux tour to California, celebrating the 25th anniversary of the acclaimed album with performances at The Theatre at The Ace Hotel in Los Angeles last night and the Lobero Theatre in Santa Barbara tonight. She spoke with KCRW's Larry Perel about Ingénue, then and now, and more. Perel calls her "an artist who I can only describe as having one of the most amazing voices in music ever." You can hear their conversation below.

    The tour, which includes all of the song from Ingénue along with hits from her 2004 Nonesuch debut album, Hymns of the 49th Parallel, follows the release of a re-mastered Anniversary Edition of Ingénue on Nonesuch last year. The two-disc set includes eight previously unreleased live performances from lang's 1993 MTV Unplugged episode, recorded in New York City's famed Ed Sullivan Theater. You can pick up a copy now in the Nonesuch Store.

    "A canny and sumptuous blend of roots music and pre-rock pop, Ingénue sounds as great today as it did upon its release," exclaims Los Angeles Times pop music critic Mikael Wood in his review of Monday night's concert. "And what a rich experience it remains ... What was remarkable about Monday's concert was how little lang's old music required to feel new." Read the review at latimes.com.

    After Santa Barbara, the Ingénue Redux tour makes its way east across the United States, culminating at the Beacon Theatre in New York City on March 26. For tour details and tickets, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    In honor of Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch puppeteer Caroll Spinney's retirement from Sesame Street after nearly 50 years, we revisit Kronos Quartet's trip to that beloved street in 1987 to talk with Big Bird about the string quartet and making music. "His open and kind-hearted view of the world and how we should treat each other is something we should forever aspire to," Kronos says of Spinney, and we concur.
