K. D. Lang
I think I fall into a lot of cracks in terms of I'm too something. I'm too this, I'm too that. And my music has never really had a home. I've been this floating alternative. I'm too mainstream for alternative. I'm too alternative for mainstream. And I'm just kind of wandering.
K. D. Lang
I never get tired of exploring Americana or country music, and I always have a little bit of a crooner in me that never seems to go away.

K. D. Lang
I think I don't sing as hard as I used to sing. I used to kind of hit the accelerator a lot back in my youth, but now it's just being able to control it, and not work it so hard and use more of an emotional or sub textual kind of approach to singing.
K. D. Lang

K. D. Lang
I believe in monogamy if that's what a couple decides upon together, but it all depends on the personal history and culture of the two involved.
K. D. Lang
As a songwriter you have an umbilical cord to the song and it's hard to expand on your understanding of the lyrics. Whereas when you cover a song you can create your own reason why you're attached to it.
K. D. Lang
Minimal is the word I'd use to describe how I live and dress, and it's also how I sing. I'm not a big fan of overemoting.
K. D. Lang
I'm a singer and as long as I can sing - which, thank God, is something that I still seem to be able to do - I'd like to carry on making records.
K. D. Lang
Life is so impermanent that it's not about somebody else or things around me, it's about knowing you are completely alone in this world and being content inside.
K. D. Lang
I sort of believe that my voice was preordained; I'm a Buddhist who believes in reincarnation so I think that my voice is a few lifetimes old.
K. D. Lang
Television really has been my vehicle. I don't get played on the radio much, so I've relied on TV a lot.
K. D. Lang
I think I have allowed my voice to experiment with the different genres. And I think that I have just really enjoyed the journey of getting to know my voice and seeing what it's capable of, what it's not capable of.
K. D. Lang
There are days when I still want to be able to do what I want when I want, but there's also something wonderful about being secure.
K. D. Lang
You have to respect your audience. Without them, you're essentially standing alone, singing to yourself.
K. D. Lang
I never, my producer never, we never let myself just sing. We were always trying to get the perfect vocal.
K. D. Lang
I often say fame is kind of like a drug or like sugar: when it's controlling you it doesn't feel good at all.
K. D. Lang
