After the top 20 Billboard 200 success of his last album Black and White America, Lenny Kravitz says that he is almost done with his next one. The CD will be titled Negrophilia. Eurweb.com reports that he is still touring for Black and White America and is going back to the big screen later on this year:
*Lenny Kravitz may be just starting to hit the road in North America for his current album “Black and White America,” but his next album, titled “Negrophilia,” is already “pretty done,” he tells Billboard.com.
He describes “Negrophilia” as “very funky, very, very raw. ‘Black and White America’ was very produced. Although it’s all natural and organic, it’s a very produced record. That’s the mode I was in at that time. But (‘Negrophilia’) is a very raw, jagged-edged album.”
Kravitz was, in fact, already working on “Negrophilia” when the songs for “Black and White America” — which debuted at No. 18 on the Billboard 200 after its Aug. 30 release — started coming along. It’s not the first time in his career that Kravitz has put the brakes on one album to put another in motion. “I’m strange like that,” he acknowledges. “At the end of the day, I’m one that goes with the inspiration. So if I’m working on an album and all of a sudden I go in another direction because that’s where inspiration takes you, I’ll just follow that. I just figure everything will have its time. You’ve got to treat it like a bottle of wine; it might have been made right now, but it’s not ready for a few years. There will be a time for it where it’ll be exactly where it needs to be. I’m just comfortable working that way.”
