LENNY KRAVITZ Releases 12th Studio Album Blue Electric Light

Today, Lenny Kravitz releases his highly anticipated new album Blue Electric Light via Roxie Records/BMG

Written and recorded by Kravitz in his studio in the Bahamas, Blue Electric Light is the rock icon’s 12th album and his first full-length musical offering in five years. “Paralyzed,” the latest single from Blue Electric Light was released on Monday, May 20, alongside the announcement of Kravitz’s Blue Electric Light Las Vegas residency set to take place this October.

Timeless. Explosive. Romantic. Inspiring. How else to characterize Blue Electric Light? The project is an impassioned suite of songs that emphasizes Kravitz’s mastery of deep-soul rock ‘n’ roll and is the latest contribution of a man whose music—not to mention his singular style—continues to inspire millions the world over. 

“Paralyzed” punctuates the album’s slew of singles with a love-drunk groove, featuring tinges of psychedelic and heavy, blues-based influences. Kravitz’s razor sharp vocals cut through fuzzy guitar riffs and hazy synths, swelling to a gut-wrenching final plea: “Babe without your love I’m paralyzed.”

“Paralyzed” followed singles “TK421” and “Human.” Energetic, funky and sexy all-around, Kravitz packed a punch right out of the gate with “TK421,” which was lauded by the likes of BillboardRolling Stone and People. Follow up single “Human” is an “absolutely infectious” anthem (Forbes), “stuffed with a thick groove of clattering percussion, chimes and a soaring chorus” (USA Today).

Overall, on the album, Kravitz’s talents as a writer, producer and multi-instrumentalist resonate as he wrote and played most of the instruments himself, with longtime guitarist Craig Ross. Ultimately, he crafted 12 tracks that are reflective of his legacy as a genre-breaking trailblazer, yet also firmly entrenched in the energy of the 21st century and beyond. 

Ahead of the release of Blue Electric Light, it was announced that Kravitz will headline the UEFA Champions League Final Kick Off Show presented by Pepsi on June 1st at Wembley Stadium in London, uniting football and music fans around the world. Additionally, on Monday, May 20, Kravitz announced a special slate of Las Vegas dates at Dolby Live at Park MGM. The Blue Electric Light Las Vegas residency will run on October 18-19, 23, 25 & 26.

Recently, Kravitz was immortalized on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, received the “Music Icon Award” at the 2024 People’s Choice Awards and was honored by the CFDA with their “Fashion Icon Award” for his role as not only one of rock’s most esteemed musicians, but also a major fashion influence. As a relentless creative force—musician, writer, producer, actor, author, designer—Lenny Kravitz continues to be a global dynamic presence throughout music, art and culture. Coming up next, Kravitz will deliver Blue Electric Light directly to fans with an extensive worldwide tour, which kicks off in Hamburg, Germany on June 23.
