Banner image: Bryony Shearmur Transcript Anne Litt: Everybody, k.d. lang and the Siss Boom Bang! (crowd cheering) AL: I have my tequila. k.d. lang: You do? Oh, jealous! AL: Thank you for that. You've really livened up the KCRW function. kdl: With tequila? (laughing) AL: Yes, usually it's warm white wine. That's how we roll. kdl: Ha! Gary, just turn the monitors off, I think. It sounds like it's giving feedback. AL: So, hi everybody, welcome! Welcome, I am so excited to meet you after all these years. kdl: I Know, it's true. I listen to you religiously. I am sure everyone here does. (clapping) AL: So, I want to talk about the record. To me, this record kind of circles back to the early records I heard with you with The Reclines that sort of introduced me to you and who you are and what you did. So, will you just paint a picture for us about how this record evolved? Like why this record, why now? kdl: Yeah.. I'm not 100 percent sure, but I know that when we were on the Watershed tour, at sound check, I was playing guitar, singing some Gillian Welsh and I was feeling this thing coming out of me. And I was manifesting this guitar player who wrote lyrics that were more of a rock thing. So, through a mutual friend, Gordon Reddy, who was working for me and worked for Guster, said… Hey Joe, you got to do it. Band mate Joe imitating Gordon: (Canadian accent) Hey, you know, you should meet my friend Joe. (laughter) kdl: Yeah, he's Canadian. Not Joe, Gordie. Gordie's Canadian. Sounds just like that and so I did. I met Joe backstage at the Ryman Auditiorium. AL: Just on that tour. kdl: Yeah, on that tour, rmoreless
