Lenny Kravitz' new album

  • on: July 08, 2011, 08:53:46 AM
Hi, last year Lenny Kravitz talked about the song "(I Can't Make It) Another Day" and about his friendship with Michael in an interview with George Lopez. Also about a new album, which will be released soon. I like the song and the lyrics of the (leaked) song "Stand" : "Your faith and patience will be your soldiers" ;)

Lenny Kravitz to release new album this summer

This new album is particularly personal cause it's based on Lenny's life experience and in the way he sees the world.
 "It's my life," Kravitz -- the son of a black actress, Roxie Roker, and a white television producer, Sy Kravitz -- tells Billboard.com. "I grew up in an environment where I was in between a so-called black and white world. My life has always been about contrasts, and it reflects on not only my life and what I've gone through with my parents and what I saw growing up, but also where we are now as far as this country, and accepting these kind of changes where we now have an African-American president."
 
Kravitz started recording "Black and White America" -- which is due out this summer -- during mid-2009 in the Bahamas. He produced and played most of the instruments, bringing in his regular guitarist Craig Ross and a horn section that includes New Orleans' Troy "Trombone Shorty" Andrews on trombone and trumpet. A release date and first single are still being determined.
 
Kravitz describes the 12-song set as "very up -- probably the most up album I've done. It's really well-rounded as far as where my influences come from, why I love music and what I grew up listening to. This one really runs the spectrum from rock to funk to pop to R&B to jazz to blues...it's really raw." Kravitz says it also makes greater use of synthesizers than he has in the past, tapping into a collection of vintage instruments that he's collected over the years.
 
Fans are already hearing the song "Come On Get It," which being used in an NBA promotion with  Turner Broadcasting. A version of the track is available at NBA.com and at Kravitz's website, and Kravitz, who resides in Miami and is a Heat fan, will perform at the NBA All-Star Game on Sunday.

Lenny Kravitz - Stand Lyrics

Don't give up,
You're gonna see tomorrow
That you'll be on your feet again
Sometimes the world's gonna knock you over
But you will see who you are your friends

Come on, stand, up again
Come on, stand,
Stand, you're gonna run again

Your faith and patience will be your soldiers
To guide you through your troubled times
Just put one foot in front of the other
The battles are inside your mind
You have the power to face your demons
No matter how they go on time
And rid yourself of your fear and weakness
So you can start to live your life

COME ON! stand, up again
Come on, stand,
Stand, you're gonna run again

COME ON! stand, up again
Come on, stand,
Stand, you're gonna run again

Pick up your will
And put on your face
If you need to, just take my hand
It's time to demonstrate, don't hesitate
Just get up and say: Yes, I can

Stand, up again
Come on, stand,
Stand, you're gonna run again

Stand, up again
Come on, stand,
Stand, you're gonna run again
