"Back in 1992, singer k.d. lang released a record unlike any other," says NPR's Robin Hilton, co-host of All Songs Considered. "Ingénue slithered against the popular music grain with songs that drew slow, deep breaths and sighed seductively. It had an alluringly divergent sound that landed somewhere in a blurry nexus of pop, country and global folk, with accordions, clarinets and Eastern European flourishes. And lang's monumental voice, both powerful and restrained, was simply unforgettable as she sang languorous songs of love and desire."
Ingénue was k.d. lang's fifth album, following a quartet of records that pushed the boundaries of country music. Released in 1992, the album was the first of entirely new material. lang wrote most of the songs with her longtime collaborator Ben Mink; Greg Penny co-wrote "So It Shall Be," and all three produced the album. The U.K.'s 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." The New York Times, in reviewing the album, praised its "extravagantly torchy romanticism," adding that lang's "genre-bending is a musicianly accomplishment, but her ability to tug heartstrings is a hard-won gift."
