    Video: k.d. lang and the Siss Boom Bang Perform Songs from "Sing it Loud" at Sunset Sessions

    k.d. lang and the Siss Boom Bang performed outside the John Varvatos boutique in West Hollywood on Sunday for a lucky and very generous crowd of some 1,500 attendees at the John Varvatos 8th Annual Stuart House Benefit. Variety's Jenny Peters says lang and co. "did a sublime set to close out the lovely afternoon." (Peters also suggests lang "is apparently drinking from the fountain of youth. Her pink-cheeked skin matched her incredible vocals; she's one rocker who hasn't aged a bit.") You can see a slideshow of photos from the event at huffingtonpost.com.

    Last month, lang and the band were in San Diego to give their first public performance together at Michele Clark's Sunset Sessions, an event that brings together music supervisors and radio stations from across the country. The 35-minute set featured five songs from their forthcoming Nonesuch release, Sing it Loud—"I Confess," "Habit of Mind," "A Sleep with No Dreaming," "Sugar Buzz," and the Talking Heads tune "Heaven"—as well as her classic hit "Constant Craving," her famed take on Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah," and a special birthday tribute to Warner Bros. Records President Livia Tortella. It was all captured on video, which you can watch below:

    While at Sunset Sessions, lang spoke with Brad Dolbeer of Portland radio station KINK FM 101.9. You can listen to that interview online at kink.com.

    Sing it Loud is due out on April 12. Head to the Nonesuch Store to pre-order it now and reserve your copy of the manuscript lyric sheet of the opening track, "I Confess," a number of which will be signed by lang. There's also an expanded version of the album at kdlang.com.

    New dates are being added to k.d. lang and the Siss Boom Bang's upcoming tour. To find out where they're playing near you, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    Jeremy Denk’s Mozart Piano Concertos is now available on Nonesuch Records. Denk is joined by The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra for two Mozart concertos—No. 25 in C Major, K. 503 and No. 20 in D minor, K. 466—bookending the composer’s solo Rondo in A minor, K. 511. "Denk approaches everything with questing intelligence and energy," says the Observer. "His ornaments and cadenzas are full of wit and imagination, his ear for detail incisive and bracing. The excellent Saint Paul players match his variety and range of expression. As ever, Denk’s probing liner notes shed light, making an already engrossing album more than worth the purchase.”
