Though she’s currently on a winter break, pop-country singer k.d. lang continues to dream of spring and a new tour. The vocalist launches her 15-date trek across the U.S. on March 20 at Wild Horse Gaming Resort in Pendleton, OR, and wraps the outing on May 3 at George Theatre on Staten Island, NY.

The spring 2009 tour will take the Canadian singer from coast to coast, including a March 22 show at Pantages Theater in Tacoma, WA, an April 7 set at Benedum Center in Pittsburgh, PA, and an April 29 gig at State Theatre in New Brunswick, NJ.

Public onsales for the tour’s opening concert begin February 20, and tickets for all remaining shows are currently available. Ticket prices vary depending on the venue; more information is available on lang’s Web site.

Lang is continuing to support her February 2008 release, “Watershed,” which entered the Billboard 200 at No. 8, her highest-ever placement on the chart. The record’s first and only single to-date, “I Dream of Spring,” was released in November 2007.

The musician describes her eighth studio album as a culmination of all her previous works and a reflection of her 25-year career. “I think it reflects all the styles that have preceded this in my catalogue,” lang explained in a statement. “I didn’t feel the need to be genre-specific because this experience felt so wide open. I didn’t have a band in the studio where I had to come up with a feel for a song because the clock was ticking and dollars were flying out the window.”
