?Few singers command such perfection of pitch,? said the New York Times? Stephen Holden in a live review. ?Her voice, at once beautiful and unadorned and softened with a veil of smoke, invariably hits the middle of a note and remains there.?
In addition to producing the album together, lang and Pisapia co-wrote five songs for Sing it Loud, which was recorded in Nashville at Pisapia?s Middletree Studios. She collaborated with Clarke and Grange on an additional three tracks, including the lead single, ?I Confess,? which is on iTunes. The title track, penned by Pisapia, and a striking version of Talking Heads? ?Heaven? round out the collection.
Sing it Loud is lang?s first studio album since 2008?s Watershed, which debuted in the Top 10 of the Billboard 200. In 2010, she marked the 25th anniversary of her recording debut with Recollection, a career retrospective. She has won four GRAMMY® awards, eight Juno Awards, a BRIT, an AMA, a VMA, and four awards from GLAAD. ?Hallelujah Vancouver Winter 2010??an interpretation of the Leonard Cohen classic that lang recorded live at the opening ceremonies of the 2010 Winter Olympics?was recently nominated for a Juno Award for Single of the Year. In 1996, she received Canada?s highest civilian honor, the Order of Canada. She has appeared alongside such musical luminaries as Roy Orbison, Bonnie Raitt, Elton John, Loretta Lynn, and Tony Bennett. ?She?s the best singer of her generation,?
observed Bennett, who has frequently toured with lang since their 2002 Wonderful World duets album. lang has also contributed to numerous soundtracks, including Even Cowgirls Get the Blues, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, and Happy Feet, and has appeared in such films as Salmonberries, The Black Dahlia, and Eye of the Beholder.
