Lenny Kravitz announces vinyl reissue series

Lenny Kravitz will launch a vinyl reissue series with the re-release of his first five albums in sync with the opening of a US tour next month.

On September 21, the rocker will present 1991's “Mama Said”, 1993's “Are You Gonna Go My Way”, 1995's “Circus” and 1998's “5” on 2LP 180-gram black vinyl – in addition to individualized limited-edition, color variants – on the same day he kicks off US shows in Atlanta, GA in support of his forthcoming new record, “Raise Vibration.”

As part of its 30th anniversary, Kravitz’ 1989 debut, “Let Love Rule”, will follow on November 30, with all of the records except “Mama Said” set to feature non-album tracks (see list below), with many of them appearing on vinyl for the very first time.

No two color-variants are the same: “Let Love Rule” is 50/50 semi-transparent brown and yellow; “Mama Said” is marbled white and gray; “Are You Gonna Go My Way” is transparent red and transparent purple; “Circus” is solid white and transparent clear; and, “5” is solid orange and solid white.

Ahead of the reissues and tour launch, Kravitz will release his eleventh studio album, “Raise Vibration”, on September 7.

The project follows the rocker’s pattern of playing most of the instruments himself alongside longtime guitarist Craig Ross.
