Lenny Kravitz will drop his first album in three years in February 2008 and follow it with another one later on.
In February 2008, Lenny Kravitz will release 'It Is Time for a Love Revolution', one part of his album that will be released that year. He will then embark on a tour that hinders huge publicity so that he can "get close to the people and have fun".
The follow up of 2004's 'Baptism', the new album has been baked in four different studios -Bahamas, Paris, New York and Miami - and results in a more experimental sound from the Grammy-winning singer.
"The last record was still very natural, but it had a cleaner sound," Kravitz said in a phone interview with Billboard.com. "On this one, I was really into using more of the room mics and getting a lot of spill. I wanted to hear the walls and the room."
Some tracks already make the cut are strip down rock 'Bring It On', 'Luv Luv Luv', and ballads 'I'll be Waiting', 'I Love the Rain', 'A long and Sad Goodbye'. There are also some tracks containing political element such as 'I Want to Go Home' and 'Back in Vietnam'.
"I needed a lot of fresh material, really, for me," Kravitz said. "I don't want to just be rehashing the hits and stuff. I want to stretch out and do a good amount of new material. Otherwise, you're not inspired. You're just doing business."
'Bring It On' is currently being set as the lead single but there has been no confirmation to this. There is a plan to release another album in 2008 titled 'Funk', which was reported to be Kravitz' long time project since 1997.
