KD Covers Elvis

June 18, 2006 | Music
Canadian songstress K.D Lang has just released her retrospective album entitled 'Reintarnation' a best-of anthology of her independent country songs. The cover of her new album is yet another hommage to Elvis' first LP.

When asked about the cover K.S. Lang said, "I just liked the idea of taking Elvis' album cover, along with The Clash's seminal 'London Calling', as I always used to get compared to Sid Vicious and Elvis Presley when I was doing country. And so I just thought that that was a tip of the hat to the people who used to call me a 'CowPunk.' It sort of goes back to the combination of Rockabilly and Punk."

In the past K.D Lang has commented on Elvis saying, "He had total love in his eyes when he performed. He was the total androgenous beauty. I would practice Elvis in front of the mirror when I was twelve or thirteen years old."
