Kravitz & His Love Revolution
On February 5, “It Is Time For A Love Revolution,” Lenny Kravitz’s first self- produced studio album since 2004, will hit stores. Two singles from the album, “I’ll Be Waiting” and “Bring It On,” have already made their way to Baltimore’s FM frequencies.
The musician currently has plans for a two-week tour starting January 17 in major cities across the country to promote his album. Projected dates for a larger U.S. and European tour, following the actual release of “It Is Time For A Love Revolution,” have yet to be announced.
Mr. Kravitz, son of a Jewish television producer, recently commented on the album to entertainment Web site http://www.acedmagazine.com. He said, “I love this record and the feel of the record… I felt like a kid playing in my bedroom and that’s the most important thing you can tap into, that feeling of being free.”
Details and sound samples from “It Is Time For A Love Revolution” are available on Kravitz’s myspace page, http://www.myspace.com/lennykravitz.
