    "k.d. lang – Landmarks Live in Concert: A Great Performances Special" Premieres December 14 on PBS

    Singer-songwriter k.d. lang performs a 25th anniversary concert celebrating her critically acclaimed 1992 album Ingénue from the Majestic Theater in San Antonio, Texas, in k.d. lang – Landmarks Live in Concert: A Great Performances Special, premiering across the United States on Friday, December 14, at 9 pm on PBS.

    This Landmarks Live in Concert special features an uninterrupted performance of the complete Ingénue album, including lang's Grammy Award–winning hit "Constant Craving," "Save Me," "Wash Me Clean," "Season of Hollow Soul" (which you can watch below) and "Miss Chatelaine." The concert also includes the beloved Leonard Cohen song "Hallelujah" and a previously unreleased song by lang and Joe Pisapia, "Sleeping Alone." The special also features an interview with lang by James Reed, an entertainment editor at Los Angeles Times.

    "Ingénue was a change in vernacular and vocabulary in that it was personal—finding some romantic space," says lang. "It was time. It was me. I had gotten to a time and point where I wanted to be me."

    "Working with k.d. to create such a personal and special piece is one of the highlights of my career," said Landmarks Live in Concert director and executive producer Daniel E Catullo III. "This show is special in so many ways and I was honored to be able to work with k.d. to translate this show onto TV."

    The concert will be available to stream the following day, December 15, via PBS Passport—a special benefit for PBS supporters to access an on-demand library of over 1,000 hours of public television programming—at pbs.org/gperf and on PBS apps. The concert DVD and Blu-ray also will be available December 14 via MVD Entertainment Group, and is available to pre-order on Amazon.

    k.d. lang's Ingénue: 25th Anniversary Edition was released by Nonesuch Records last year in celebration of the double platinum-selling, Grammy Award–winning album's silver anniversary. The two-disc set includes remastered versions of the album's original ten tracks as well as eight previously unreleased 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.
