A very long time, I still go back and listen to his classic albums from time to time. On September 23rd, 2014, Lenny will be releasing his upcoming tenth album titled, Strut via Roxie Records, Inc. Here’s the first single amply titled “Sex”, and is very Lenny Kravitz. By that I mean, guitar driven, and loud drums. Also check the very unsafe for a man’s eyes artwork after the break.
