Lenny Kravitz Announces ‘Raise Vibration’ Album
Lenny Kravitz is set to release his 11th studio album, Raise Vibration, on Sept. 7.
The news arrived with the first single, "It's Enough," which a press release describes as a "a tense, decisive rumination on the global state of affairs today."
“People are standing up," Kravitz noted. "I’ve had enough of racism. I‘ve had enough of war. I’ve had enough of the destruction of the environment and the greed and dishonesty of world leaders. We’ve got to get back on track towards moving forward through higher understanding.”
Kravitz premiered the song's video on Facebook, complete with a warning that it was "graphic and may be disturbing to some viewers." The eight-minute-clip contains news footage of, among other things, police brutality, animal abuse and white supremacists, as well as demonstrations against all of those issues. Musically, Kravitz channels his inner Curtis Mayfield as he runs off a litany of topical issues.

At the end of the month, Kravitz begins a European tour that will last through July 30. As of now, he has only one U.S. date on his calendar, the Bourbon & Beyond festival in Louisville on Sept. 22. Tickets are currently on sale and you can get full information at his website.
