Lenny Kravitz Talks Black and White America
"It's really well-rounded as far as my influences come from, why I love music, and what I grew up listening to," Kravitz said. "It's really raw."
As for the album's title, Kravitz (who is biracial, with a black mother and a white father) said, "It's my life. 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 … All the records are personal, so I can't say this one is more personal than the others, but I think it tells more of my story. I think it'll give people a little more insight into me and my life." more on this story
