Lenny Kravitz Returns In May With ‘Baptism’

Lenny Kravitz will return to the spotlight this spring with his seventh studio album, “Baptism.” The set is due May 18 via Virgin and will be preceded by the single “Where Are We Runnin’?,” which will be delivered March 29 to U.S. radio outlets for airplay consideration. “‘Baptism’ marks a musical and spiritual rebirth,” the artist says. “That’s what this album is all about.”

“Baptism” is largely a solitary undertaking for Kravitz, who wrote, produced, arranged and played nearly all of the instruments on the set’s 13 tracks. In his first foray into a hip-hop crossover, the artist teams up with rapper Jay-Z on the track “Storm.” Lionel Richie guests on the track “Destiny.”

Kravitz has tour dates lined up through July, including previously announced appearances on April 30 and May 1 at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. From there, he heads to Europe for Holland’s Pink Pop festival on May 31 and 19 further headlining shows on the continent. The North American portion of the trek will begin in August and run through October.
