Singer-songwriter K.D. Lang is featured on a new stamp to be released by the Canadian Post later this month. Each stamp features a photo of Lang taken by Jeri Heiden, whose art direction can be seen on Lang's many iconic album designs. The stamp is one of five in the Post's Country Legends stamp series, honoring some of Canada's most recognized country musicians, and part of Canada Post's larger 2014 stamp program, which aims to demonstrate Canada's diverse combination of achievement, progress, and culture. The new K.D. Lang stamp is now available to pre-order via canadapost.ca, shipping on or after July 31.
"Collectively we continue to capture moments that will long live through our stamp collection," says Deepak Chopra, President and CEO of Canada Post. "And we encourage everyone to take note of these stories as they truly mark who we are as Canadians."
K.D. Lang's latest album, Sing it Loud, was released on Nonesuch Records in 2011 and followed the 2010 career retrospective Recollection, which marked the 25th anniversary of her recording debut. She made her Broadway debut earlier this year in the new musical, After Midnight. In 2013, Lang was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame. She had previously won eight Juno Awards, four Grammy Awards, a BRIT, an AMA, a VMA, and four awards from GLAAD. In 1996, she received Canada's highest civilian honor, the Order of Canada.
