Lenny Kravitz Announces UK Tour "Black and White America"

NEW Album set to Debut on August 22nd Ex-North America and August 30 in the US 

Debut single “Stand” impacts Radio on June 6th Lenny Kravitz announces European Tour to coincide with album launch

Four time GRAMMY Award winning artist Lenny Kravitz is proud to announce the release of his new single, “Stand” set to hit radio in late June. The track is taken from his highly-anticipated ninthstudio album, Black and White America (Atlantic Records/Roadrunner Records). The collection, set to debut on August 22 ex-North America and August 30 in the U.S, marks Kravitz’s first release on the new label, following 8 previous albums and over 35 million units sold.

In addition to his new single, Lenny Kravitz has confirmed a European tour in October/November to coincide with the launch of Black and White America. In addition to the album, Lenny Kravitz, who most recently appeared in the Oscar nominated film Precious, has announced that he has been cast in the role of Cinna in the much anticipated film adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ worldwide smash hit novel, The Hunger Games.

The tour titled Black and White Europe will feature brand new staging and production and include all of Lenny’s biggest hits as well as showcase the new album. Fans who sign up on www.lennykravitz.com or follow him on Facebook or Twitter will be the first to receive the pre-sale information for the tour. 

Marking his first release of new material in three years, Black and White America is a rich rock and funk-infused collection filled with Lenny’s signature guitar riffs, compelling melodies and the undeniable anthemic lyricism that has been his trademark over the course of his 20-year career.

Recorded in the Bahamas and Paris, Lenny Kravitz’s vocals and guitar playing are as distinct as ever on Black and White America, showcasing the intensity with which he records and performs. Kravitz, a multi-instrumentalist, produced, wrote and arranged the 16 tracks on the record.

Regarded as one of the preeminent rock musicians of our time, Lenny Kravitz has transcended genre, style, race and class into a 20-year musical career, one which revels in the rich influences of '60s and '70s soul, rock and funk. From 1999 to 2002, he won four consecutive Grammy Awards, setting a record for the most wins in the “Best Male Rock Vocal Performance” category with his single “Dig In” (previously winning for “Again,” “American Woman” and “Fly Away”).
