In 1992, K.D. Lang released Ingénue, an album unlike anything else on mainstream radio that would cement her status as one of the greatest vocalist of her generation. A stark departure from her previous alt-country albums, Ingénue was a nod to the timeless work of George Gershwin and Kurt Weill and mixed global folk with middle-of-the-road pop. With more than two million copies sold worldwide, the album spawned the Top 40 hit “Constant Craving” and earned Lang a Grammy for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance. On Friday, Lang brings her Ingénue Redux tour, a celebration of the album’s 25th anniversary, to the Majestic to be filmed as part of the PBS series Great Performances. Along with hits from her 2004 album, Hymns of the 49th Parallel, Lang will perform Ingénue in its entirety. A success in its own right, the release of Lang’s Ingénue is also remembered as a pivotal moment for the LGBT community. Soon after the album’s release, Lang would come out as gay in an interview with The Advocate and later pose for a controversial Vanity Fair cover alongside supermodel Cindy Crawford.
