Why The Rolling Stones Gave k.d. lang A Songwriting Credit

by Paul Cashmere on February 16, 2017

in News

k.d. lang will celebrate the 25th anniversary of her international hit album ‘Ingénue’ with the Ingénue Redux Tour in Australia in July and one of the songs on that album inspired a Rolling Stones song.

‘Ingénue’ reached no 3 on the Australian chart in 1992. In the USA it sold over 2 million copies. ‘Constant Craving’, the last song on the ‘Ingénue’ album was the hit.

In 1997 The Rolling Stones added a credit to k.d. lang on their song ‘Anybody Seen My Baby’ after Keith Richards’ daughter Angela informed her father that he may have unintentionally styled his song on the k.d. lang classic.

In his book ‘Life’ Keith Richards wrote, “My daughter Angela and her friend were at Redlands and I was playing the record and they start singing this totally different song over it. They were hearing K.D. Lang’s ‘Constant Craving.’ It was Angela and her friend that copped it.”

The Stones gave k.d. a co-credit to avoid a lawsuit. k.d. later said that she was “completely honored and flattered”.

k.d. lang Australian dates

July 18, Melbourne, The Plenary
July 23, Perth, Riverside Theatre
July 26, Sydney, ICC Theatre
