Lenny Kravitz, the four times Grammy award winner, is happy to announce the release of his new song, ‘Stand’, the first single from his much-anticipated ninth album, Black and White America (Atlantic Records, Roadrunner). This new work, his first on a new label, follows eight albums that have sold more than 35 million copies world-wide.
The new tour, ‘Black and White Europe’, will have brand new staging and groundbreaking production. Lenny will play all his hits and showcase his new album.
The album, Lenny’s first in nearly three years, is a successful mixture of rock and funk influences, driven by the unique guitar riffs and melodic sense that have been his trademark for more than 20 years.
Recorded in the Bahamas and in Paris, Lenny’s vocals and guitar have never been so powerful and have never succeeded better in communicating the energy of his live performances. Lenny wrote, produced and arranged the 16 tracks, making full use of his many skills and talents as multi-instrumentalist.
Regarded as one of the most important rock musicians of his generation, Lenny Kravitz has transcended genre, style and class with a range of musical influences (essentially soul, rock and funk from the '60s and '70s) that have been informing his work and career for over 20 years. Between 1999 and 2002, he won four consecutive Grammy Awards, and now holds the record in the Best Male Artist category (with the songs ‘Dig In’, ‘Again’, ‘American Woman’ and ‘Fly Away’).
