New Release: Lenny Kravitz – ‘Black And White America’ Mixtape + Download, Tour Dates, & Video

 

Our man Lenny Kravitz is in full effect as you may have seen with his “Black And White America” video we posted in November. And today we give thanks to modern mixtape culture for bringing us a free Black And White America Mixtape. A Lenny Kravitz mixtape?! Yep.

Following up to his ninth studio album, Black and White America, the mixtape is essentially a reworked presentation of its tracks mixed and sprinkled with some exclusive re-edits. The work’s storytelling is strongly focused on racial integration and sonically melds together both throwback and future sounds. Stream and download the mixtape for free below!

Also, after the jump you can catch Lenny’s tour dates as well as his video for “Push.”

It’s brightening our Holiday season, and we think it will do the same for you. From Eddie Jefferson to Chaka Khan, Nina Simone and Betty Lou, this is the equivalent of a Brownswood Basement session the way only GP can. Enjoy.
