Tonight on NRN, we are Exploring Lenny Kravitz’s “Blue Electric Light”

This evening on NRN Radio Show, we’re diving into the mesmerizing world of Lenny Kravitz’s latest album, Blue Electric Light. It’s a collection that defies singular description but can be encapsulated by words like timeless, explosive, romantic, and inspiring.

Lenny Kravitz’s mastery of deep-soul rock ‘n’ roll is undeniable, and his multifaceted talents as a musician, writer, producer, actor, author, and designer make him a dynamic force in the realms of music, art, and culture. In Blue Electric Light, these diverse skills come together brilliantly. Kravitz, with the indispensable help of longtime guitarist Craig Ross, took on most of the instrumental duties himself. The result is a passionate and powerful album that further cements Kravitz’s legacy, inspiring fans and peers alike.

The album is driven by standout tracks like “TK421” and “Human,” marking Kravitz’s first full-length studio release in five years and his inaugural double LP. Recorded in the relaxed atmosphere of his studio in the Bahamas, Kravitz had the freedom to immerse himself in the creative process without the constraints of studio time. This unhurried approach allowed him to delve deeply into the soulful rock ‘n’ roll that has become his signature.

“TK421” opens the album with a burst of energy, combining ecstatic funk guitars, robotic analog synths, a talkbox, dancefloor beats, a fiery saxophone solo, and playful nods to Boogie Nights and Star Wars. It sets a high-octane pace that carries throughout the album. In contrast, “Human” offers a reflective and heartfelt message. Kravitz describes it as a song about our shared humanity: “This song means so much to me; it’s about all of us. We are all in this together, we are here to be human, we are all spiritual beings, and in the human spirit, the journey is beautiful.”

Over a career spanning more than three decades, Lenny Kravitz has released eleven studio albums, sold over 40 million records worldwide, and transcended genres, styles, race, and class. His unique blend of soul, rock, and funk influences from the sixties and seventies has earned him four Grammy Awards and the record for the most wins in the Best Male Rock Vocal Performance category. With Blue Electric Light, Kravitz continues to do what he does best while exploring new musical territories, reaffirming his status as a singular artist in the world of rock ‘n’ roll.
