With Strut, Lenny Kravitz‘s first new album in three years, out in September, the singer is prepping for its release with a new single, released today.
“The Chamber,” Strut‘s first single, also has an accompanying lyric video.
The song features a grooving bassline, with Kravitz lamenting a lover who “put one in the chamber and shot my heart of glass.”
Strut is produced and arranged by Kravitz, who also plays guitar, bass, keyboards and drums and percussion on the album. For an extra ear, he invited Bob Clearmountain (David Bowie, Bruce Springsteen) to mix it.
In a statement issued by his publicist, Kravitz said of Strut, “This record brought me back to a place of what I love so much about music, back to the feelings I had when I was in high school. It’s a real rock & roll record – it’s raw, it’s got soul and it came together really quickly.”
Additionally, Kravitz announced he will mount a world tour in support of the album to start Oct. 22 in Moscow, continuing through Dec. 11 in France. No North American dates have yet been announced.
Strut is out Sept. 23.
