"Elvis is alive and she's beautiful!"
The title of this post is a quote about kd lang. Can you guess who said it, in a moment of cleverness?
kd lang is about to release her new CD called Hymns Of The 49th Parallel on July 27th. It's a covers album of songs by Canadian songwriters, including Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen and Ron Sexsmith (who is still in his prime). You can already sample her brilliant cover of Neil Young's Helpless on itunes (or just get snippets of a few songs on Amazon). I played it over and over yesterday.
I don't have a recent picture of kd, but the last time I saw her I realized that Clay Aiken has stolen her look!
