In addition to the album, Lenny Kravitz, who most recently appeared in the Oscar nominated film Precious
, has announced that he has been cast in the role of Cinna in the much anticipated film adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ worldwide smash hit novel, The Hunger Games
The tour titled Black and White Europe

or follow him on Facebook or Twitter will be the first to receive the pre-sale information for the tour.
Marking his first release of new material in three years, Black and White America is a rich rock and funk-infused collection filled with Lenny’s signature guitar riffs, compelling melodies and the undeniable anthemic lyricism that has been his trademark over the course of his 20-year career.
Recorded in the Bahamas and Paris, Lenny Kravitz’s vocals and guitar playing are as distinct as ever on Black and White America, showcasing the intensity with which he records and performs. Kravitz, a multi-instrumentalist, produced, wrote and arranged the 16 tracks on the record.
Regarded as one of the preeminent rock musicians of our time, Lenny Kravitz has transcended genre, style, race and class into a 20-year musical career, one which revels in the rich influences of ’60s and ’70s soul, rock and funk. From 1999 to 2002, he won four consecutive Grammy Awards, setting a record for the most wins in the “Best Male Rock Vocal Performance
” category with his single “Dig In” (previously winning for “Again,” “American Woman” and “Fly Away”).
