This new two-disc set includes remastered versions of the album’s original ten tracks, including its huge hit ‘Constant Craving’, and the second disc features eight previously unreleased performances from lang’s 1993 MTV Unplugged episode.

‘Ingénue’ was k.d. lang’s fifth album, following a quartet of records that pushed the boundaries of country music. Released in 1992, The NME named it one of the year’s best albums and said, ‘You will fall in love with Ingénue. In fact, you will want to have its children.’ As James Reed writes in the 25th Anniversary Edition liner notes, “‘Ingénue’ is still such a mysterious body of work… You’d be hard-pressed to pinpoint when the album was released or even made and where. It slinks out of the speakers with luminous melodies in search of a soundtrack, its choruses as vast and sweeping as the Canadian prairies where lang grew up in Consort, Alberta. A strange brew of torch and twang, of pop gloss and jazz sophistication – and shot through with Eastern European flourishes… lang was fond of calling it ‘post-nuclear cabaret’ back then. Throughout Ingénue, a succinct song cycle and ode to an unrequited relationship, we witness an artist navigating love in its many splendors. It should have come with a warning sticker on its cover: ‘Love is not always pretty. Proceed with caution – and a Kleenex.”
